Educational Background:

Following my high school graduation, I attended Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN. I received an elementary education degree with coaching endorsements, but decided to enter the college coaching ranks. I spent nine years at several programs as a football assistant coach and track & field coach. Our family moved to Iowa from Brandon, SD, where I taught 4th and 5th grade students for the Brandon Valley School District, while coaching football, basketball and track & field. I earned a Masters of Education Administration from the University of Sioux Falls. I'm in my seventeenth year as elementary principal at BHES.
