Welcome to Clear Lake Elementary School!  It is an absolute privilege working with students on a daily basis and serving our school community in this capacity.  I believe that the potential for student success dramatically increases through our partnerships with parents and families. I am looking forward to meeting all of you in the near future!

Education has always been my passion!  As educators we have a tremendous responsibility working with students on a daily basis.  The Clear Lake Elementary staff and administration are committed to meeting the individual needs of all our students to help prepare them for a global world.  My hope is that you will visit Clear Lake this year to learn more about the exciting opportunities that are being offered to our students.  

I have a B.A. Degree in Early Childhood Education from Harding University in Arkansas.  I obtained my Master's Degree from Oakland University in Educational Leadership.  Prior to my arrival at Clear Lake I spent three years at Oxford Middle School and several years working with students at Daniel Axford Elementary, teaching both 1st and 2nd grades.  In 2007, I participated in Oakland Schools Aspiring Principals' Leadership Academy which included a year long administrative internship. I had the opportunity to serve as the interim Principal at Daniel Axford during the 2009 school year.  

My wife April and I currently reside in Oxford.  Our four children Mallory, Brady,  Genevieve and Bridgette keep us both busy and entertained.  We enjoy traveling, attending sporting events, and spending time with family.

I am looking forward to a great year! GO WILDCATS!!!
