    My family and I feel blessed to make Willard our Home. Our family's passion is to positively impact the lives of others, I grew up in Germany, as a son of missionaries. My wife, Suzanne and I met in Fayette, MO in the 8th grade and we've been best friends ever since. We have a son, Leyton, and two daughters, Eva and Darci. Prior to Willard, I served as the Superintendent of Smithton R-VI.  Prior to my role as Superintendent, I was principal of Smithville Middle School for 4 years. I've also had experiences at Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Mexico School District. I hold my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from St. Louis University, Educational Specialist Degree from William Woods University, and Masters and Bachelors degrees from Truman State University. In addition, I have taught graduate courses for William Woods University since 2009. I enjoy family time, zoos, learning, officiating, and walking.

    It is an honor to be a part of the Willard family!  As an educator, my passion is to support and serve students with excellence and high expectations to make a difference every day.  In the Willard strategic plan, the shared vision is to grow student leaders to become life-ready graduates and I am thankful that my family has the privilege of helping this dream come to fruition.  My wife, Jacki, is a part of the Willard Elementary North early childhood team and my 3 kids, Kathryn, Jaxon and Kamryn, attend Willard Schools.  Prior to Willard, I spent 4 years in the Springfield School District as Executive Director of Secondary Learning.  I also spent 15 years at Bolivar Middle School; 5 years as a 6th grade teacher and 10 years as the building principal.  In addition, I had experience at Halfway Schools as the 7-12 building principal.  I hold a doctorate degree from Southwest Baptist University and received master’s and specialist degrees also from Southwest Baptist University.  In addition, I have taught master’s level graduate courses for Southwest Baptist University since 2008.  In my free time, I spend time with family, take walks with my wife, read fiction books, attend church, go to kids’ sporting events and spend time with friends.
