I am honored to serve the students, parents, and staff of North Platte High, as well as our larger community. We have an excellent staff and will be working towards continuous school improvement. Prior to my current role as Principal, I served as Associate Principal. This allowed numerous opportunities to build positive, productive relationships with others. I have also served as a principal and activities director in previous school districts in Northeast Nebraska. My teaching career began at Morton Middle School in Omaha Public Schools, where I was a science teacher, PLT leader, and coach. These past experiences helped to make me a better educator and have served me well in my time in North Platte Public Schools.
I received my bachelors degree in Middle Grades Education (4-9) from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, my Masters Degree in PK-12 Administration from Wayne State College, and am currently working on my Doctoral Degree (Ed.D.) through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I received my high school diploma from Grand Island Senior High in 2003.
My greatest supports are my family. My wife, Reva, is the Elementary Special-Education Facilitator for North Platte Public Schools. Reva is a passionate, talented educator. More importantly, she is a wonderful mother to our daughters, Zoey (Student at McDonald Elementary) and Stella. Just as you want the best for your own children, you end up wanting the same for all children.
As you have questions, concerns, and ideas for our high school, please contact our administrative team. We are here to support and help grow our community.

I also have a beautiful boy name Grayson, who is the greatest blessing a person could ask for. He is a constant reminder of the importance of guidance and leadership. My role for being an administrator is developing skills that shape our future students’ in effectively educating life-long learners by understanding skills and attributes necessary to become productive citizens.
