Principal's Profile

[email protected]

Phone: 284-2010

I was born and raised in Fort Madison, Iowa. I graduated from Aquinas High School in 1986 and began my post-secondary education at Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa. After two years, I transferred to the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education in 1991. Trina and I were married that summer and moved to the Quad-Cities. I taught 5th grade in Bettendorf, Iowa for one year and 4th grade in Clinton, Iowa for six years. I graduated from Western Illinois University with a Master's degree in educational administration in 1997. I served as the principal of Jefferson Elementary School in Harvard, Illinois from 1998-2002 before coming to Grundy. This year marks my 27th year in public education, seven years as a teacher and twenty years as a principal.  Beyond the world of education, we are active members of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Groveland where I serve on the deacon board and Trina serves in the nursery. Our family enjoys being involved with Sunday school, Kids church, AWANA, and youth group. In our spare time we love attending our kids’ activities, getting together with family and friends, and traveling. Trina and I have been blessed with four beautiful children.  Katie is a senior at Olivet Nazarene University majoring in nursing, Rachel is a sophomore at Morton High School, Caleb is a 5th grader at Grundy, and Joshua is a 2nd grader at Grundy.  We love Grundy School and are very proud to call the Morton School District our home!
