I wanted to take a moment and let you know how grateful I am to serve as the next principal of St. JamesSchool. I want to thank you for such a warm welcome. I have met parents at school, and have had many people reach out via LinkedIn. I truly appreciate the enthusiasm and parent dedication towards St. James School. When I toured St. James School, I was greeted by students while they were engaged in their daily activities. It was great to see hands-on centers happening in the lower grades, intense discussions occurring in middle school social studies, and students using the public park located behind the school. It was exciting to see how “happy” the students appeared in their day-to-day school routine.
For the past nine years, I have been teaching and coaching in the K12 school setting. Most recently, I have been working to implement personalized learning school-wide at Walworth Elementary & Middle School.
In this role, I work with every student in the school. I am passionate about building leaders and
incorporating social justice into the curriculum, both of these aspects are already in place at St. James
School. My teaching experience includes: project-based learning, STEM, increasing literacy achievement,
and integrating technology as a learning tool. My leadership experiences include working in district-run
charter schools, where enrollment management was an ongoing task. I believe in showcasing the great
learning and vibrant community of St. James School. Until just a few days ago, I was the head boys’
basketball coach at Edgerton High School. I love basketball, and coaching is integrated into my leadership
My wife and I live in Edgerton. My wife Emmy is a high school art teacher. We have three daughters: Josie
is a seven-year-old, Margaret is a three-year-old, and Eliza is five months. My family is a big part of my
life and we belong to St. Joseph Parish in Edgerton, Wisconsin.
