Hello all!

I have seen and done a lot in my many years of working.  I have an unique background, like anyone else.  I finished college back in the year 2000 at the University of Minnesota, majoring in History.  My concentration was Western American History.  I learned to explore the United States in my many years, and have lived in Alaska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and of course the wonderful tropical world of Florida.

I am a supporter of athletic goals and aspirations.  I am a firm believer that physical fitness and mental fitness work together allowing for better results in each category.  I participate in different lengths of running and triathlon races now and again, with a goal of completing an Ironman Triathlon in 2016.  I would have to say of date the grandest race I have completed was a Half Ironman, a race consisting of 1.2 mile swim, 56 miles of biking, capped off with a half marathon (13.1 mile run).  Wild, right?

I am excited for the students of this year!  There are many, opportunities in this world, and I am strong supporter of letting the students of DeSoto County to explore them.  I have a plethora of knowledge, and know that the students and our great team here at DeSoto County High School will be able to work with one another for great results!

Thank you all for visiting, and I look forward to a great 2015-2016 School year!
