I grew up in Grangeville Idaho, one of 16 children, in a his-hers-ours kind of Brady Bunch family.   Now, my wife Kristen and I have four kids of our own along with my CHS kids (600+) in a kind of Welcome Back Kotter kind of family.

Centennial High School means the world to me and I believe it is the best school in the area for our kids.  Everyday I want to make it a little bit better than it was the day before.  I believe we all should leave a place better than when we found it, in whatever way we can. 

To that end, I challenge each one of you to commit yourself to making positive contributions- each day to leave things better then when you arrived. 

As an Assistant Principal, I believe the most important part of my job is helping students work through problems.
