Meet the Principal
I have been an educator for over 20+ engaging years. I started my teaching career with Mesa Public Schools, where I taught 1st,2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades for 11 years. I spent 3 very learning years in the Florence School District as an Assistant Principal and 7 memorable years in Sierra Vista as a Principal. Interestingly enough I did research for my dissertation for one of ASU’s doctoral programs at Desert Willow Elementary. This was back when the immersion program had just started. I’m very passionate about learning languages and speak Spanish myself.
My wife Miriam and I are raising 5 children who range in ages from 10 to 23. Two of my children are still at home. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. My hobbies include singing, acting, playing sports, and the outdoors. Yes I am an Eagle Scout (certificate signed by Ronald Reagan for history enthusiasts). One of my favorite hobbies will also be DWES.
I am deeply honored to be chosen to lead such an amazing learning environment with a stupendous staff, supportive parents, and most importantly superb students!! I commit to inspire excellence and guide students as they gain skills for the future and develop a love for life-long learning.
Together we will achieve excellence!!! Juntos podremos lograr cosas maravillosas!
