SCSD #1 Superintendent
School Improvement Representative
Dear SCSD#1 Parents and Staff,
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you how excited I am for the start of the new school year. I am entering my 29th year in education, having graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1988. I began my teaching career in Long Creek, Oregon, teaching Social Studies and PE as well as coaching basketball, football and track. In 1994, I moved to Laramie High School, teaching Social Studies and coaching basketball and golf. During this time I obtained my Master’s Degree in Counseling and transitioned to a counselor at LHS in 2003. In 2006 I completed my Principal Endorsement through UW, and found myself at Tongue River High School as a counselor that same year. In 2014, I became the Principal at Tongue River Middle School, until making the transition to Superintendent of SCSD#1. My wife, Erin, and my sons Camden and Caleb, love the Big Horns, and are thrilled to continue to live and work in such a beautiful place. I look forward to working with the entire district as we strive to provide a world-class education for all of our children.
I want you to know that the single most important person we hire in this district isn’t the superintendent, the principals, directors...it is the person we put in front of your children every day; the teachers. We have great teachers across the entire district, and they will be the ones making the greatest impact on your child’s life. As a parent of two kids in the district, I understand wanting the absolute best for our kids, and as we enter the upcoming school year, we will work very hard to ensure that we are providing the best education possible for our kids.
Yours in Education,
