I began teaching in 1986. I have a Masters Degree in Agriculture Education and Mechanization. I have a Professional Educator License in the areas of Agriculture, Technology Education, & Life Sciences. I have a Workplace Specialists License in the areas of Construction and Maintenance Trades, Carpentry, Electricity, Pipe Fitting and Plumbing, and Welding. I am certified to teach Project Lead the Way in Introduction to Engineering Design and Principles of Engineering.
My family and I have a small farm and raise mules, swine, cattle, and chickens. My wife is an English Professor at Vincennes University. We moved to the community in 2008. We have two boys still in school here at Loogootee. My older son graduated Loogootee in 2012. I have always enjoyed working with the students in preparation for them becoming productive adults. I hope to make each of my students more knowledgeable and help them be prepared for their future endeavors.
