It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the newly appointed Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education in the Provo City School District. I am honored to have been chosen to work alongside Superintendent Dau and the other members of the District Leadership Team.
During my twenty-seven-year career as an educator, I have served students as both a teacher and an administrator. I just completed my seventh year as the Principal of Corner Canyon High School. I had the opportunity to be the Principal at Albion Middle School for the two years prior to my appointment at Corner Canyon. I spent eleven years as a high school assistant principal at Hillcrest High, Brighton High, and Jordan High which provided me with a variety of opportunities to grow as an administrator as I worked with different communities and advocated for their unique needs within the Canyons School District. I began my career in Nebo School District where I worked in the classroom for eight years.
I received my Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership in 2004 from Brigham Young University. My wife, Amie, and I live in Payson, Utah where we have raised five children. It is my goal to continue advocating for students, supporting teachers, and building relationships with all stakeholders in the Provo City School District. I am grateful for this opportunity, and I look forward to working with all members of our community to create the best educational opportunities for all students.
