I am in my 30th year as an educator at Benton Community and in my first year as the Keystone Elementary Principal. I have been very fortunate to have been able to do a lot of different things in my career as a Bobcat. I taught special education, second grade, and sixth grade in the district. I coached football and wrestling for over 20 years. I also served as the activities director/7-12 assistant principal the last five years. I live in Atkins with my wife Tammy. My son Riley and daughter Peyton are both Benton Community graduates. The Benton Community school district is an amazing place to raise a family.
Have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
