Tell us a little bit about yourself, your family and your teaching history:
I am an avid Christian husband, father and principal following the lead of my Savior Jesus Christ. I am married with two children that attend Grace Christian School. My wife is an educator in the Anchorage School District which gives me a well-rounded perspective on how best to educate students!
I have taught History in both public and private schools, coached cross country running, and have been in Administration for the second half of my career.
What year did you start at Grace Christian School?
Why do you choose to teach at Grace Christian School?
I was called to teach at Grace Christian School and I still feel it is God’s will to remain here. I love being able to share the Gospel freely and throughout everything I do as a principal.
Tell us about a meaningful moment with a student:
A former student that was in my 7th grade class did not graduate from Grace because of choices he made to pursue another school. Years later I was told by a new family to Grace that he directed them to our school because he said there were many staff members that loved him even though he did not appreciate it at that time. Our witness had a positive impact that provided blessings beyond what we could have imagined.
Tell us about a time when you have been able to witness the integrity driven culture here at GCS:
One of the coolest actions to see is our students after an athletic event congratulating and encouraging competitors from other schools. I believe this is a great example of servant leadership after the heat of battle. This has led to friendships that cross school rivalry lines.
