I became the Principal of Catholic East Elementary in the Summer of 2014.  I come to this position with 8 years teaching experience and 3 years principal experience.

I received my BA from Valparaiso University with emphasis in History, Political Science and Secondary Education.  I received my MA with emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction and my Principal License from Marquette University.

I married my wife, Bethany, in June of 2011.  We welcomed twin girls to our family on June 29, 2013!

I enjoy biking, working outdoors, participating in various athletics, and love to follow local Wisconsin sports teams.

I am looking forward to being an active participant in the spiritual and academic growth of each scholar at Catholic East.  I believe Catholic education to be integral part of any community.  All students regardless of background or ability should have access to a high quality Catholic education.  As principal at Catholic East  it is my job to ensure that the Catholic Identity of our school is vibrant and that academic opportunities for each scholar are relevant and appropriate for each child’s individual development..  It is and will continue to be through these two pillars of our school that Catholic East continues to grow as a staple of the East side community.
