This is my 18th year teaching at Diller-Odell. I graduated from Peru State College in 2006. There I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I also received endorsements in middle school language arts, music, physical education, and coaching. I am originally from Liberty, Nebraska and I graduated high school from Lewiston Consolidated Schools in 2001.
Since my hiring in 2006, I have taught Kindergarten, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and now teach 7th and 8th grade English, JH/HS Quiz Bowl Team, and StrivTv Coordinator for Livestreaming school events.
My wife Stephanie and I live in Hickman. Our sons Everett (sophomore) and Canaan (8th grader), and daughter Kinley (4th grader) go to Norris. I spend most of my time running them to football, baseball, Girl Scouts, gymnastics, and anywhere else they need to go. I enjoy going to the movies, playing golf, fishing, watching baseball and football, and being with my friends and family.
