I have been teaching for 10 years. This will be my 7th year teaching in Carl Junction. My wife, Kimra, works at Freeman Hospital as a Pediatrician. You might know her as "Dr. Ross." We have 2 beautiful children: Glenn, 7 1/2 (a great fiddle player), and Edith, 6 (loves reading Little House on the Prairie books).
I like playing with my children, reading (and listening) to books, watching movies, playing with about anything electronic, playing guitar, woodworking, practicing Aikido and Karate, and working outside.
I am the president of our local chapter of the Missouri State Teachers Association. I serve on the MSTA State Membership Committee. I am the co-chairman of my church's Education Committee.
I just graduated last year from Pittsburg State University with a Master of Science in Education Leadership.
I graduated from Missouri Southern State College in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Education in English.
I graduated from Ozark Christian College in 1990 with a Certificate in Ministry.
I have taught 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. I love teaching 3rd grade, and I look forward to teaching your child this year.
