This is my fifth year as Principal at South School, I was Principal at Princeville Grade School for three years where I served students in pre-K through eighth grade. Prior to being named Principal at Princeville Grade School, I served 12 years in Peoria District #150. While in Peoria, I was a primary teacher, high school teacher, coach, and principal.
My wife Monica and I moved to Chillicothe in 2008, because we loved what the community had to offer and that our family would be attending the IVC school district. I have two daughters Elaine and Morgan and a 2 year old son Howie. Both of my girls attended South School as Kindergartners and now are enrolled at IVCHS and CEC. Elaine plays golf and is very excited to start high school. My youngest daughter Morgan is a seventh grader at CEC and plays golf, volleyball and is a member of TEAM TRRFCC. I am a proud member of the Chillicothe Lions Club and Chillicothe Optimist Club. I am a board member of the Chillicothe Optimist Theatre and a board member at large for CSYA. I am also a member of the Building Planning Committee for Chillicothe City Council. I enjoy watching all types of sports (GO CUBS) and cherish any and all time that I can spend with my family and friends. I am very excited to serve as the principal of South School!
