I am Assistant Principal at Kennedy-Powell Elementary. It is a privilege to serve KP students, family, and staff. I have been in education for almost 10 years and am excited to begin my first year in administration. I am a lifelong Wildcat, having graduated from Temple High School and spent my entire teaching career in Temple ISD. It has been my privilege to teach third grade and most recently to have served as Kennedy-Powell’s  Project Lead the Way (PLTW) teacher and coordinator.


My wife and are both Temple native and enjoy being a part of both Temple ISD and the Temple community. We have been married 6 years and have three children. Our daughter is a sophomore in college, one son will be a freshman in college this yer, and another son will be a senior at Temple High School this year. Our family spends a great deal of our time at sporting events and volunteering with the Wildcat Band.


I look forward to creating positive partnerships with everyone in the KP community, all with the goal of serving our students in the best way possible and helping them to reach their highest potential, both personally and academically.
