It’s truly an honor to serve the community as a school board member.  I would appreciate your vote on November 6, 2018 so that I may finish the term to which I was elected (expires 2020).  A few things I am doing or have done include:

  • School Board trustee (2014-current/president 2017-current)
  • Public School teacher (20 years plus)
  • Zoning Board of Appeals, member (2014-2018)
  • Michigan Education Association, member (current)
  • Vice President of Negotiations, local education association
  • Michigan Political Leadership Program, graduate

I happily reside in Williamston with my wife and two daughters and have lived in Ingham County for most of the past 30 years.  I grew up “Up North” and am the first person in my immediate family to earn a college degree. My dad was a small business owner and entrepreneur.  My mom worked at a small factory and as a nurse assistant. They both continue to work. I am thankful to my parents for a lifetime of support and encouragement.  I am inspired by my wife who somehow manages to be a hero to our kids, a leader in her profession, and my best friend.

IMG_-2zafrpI have been a public school teacher for over two decades.  I care deeply about our students and our schools.  I am also the president of the Williamston Community Schools Board of Education. My experiences in public education provide the foundation on which I base my school board service.  In addition to my experiences as an educator and a parent, I have received training from nationally recognized programs in leadership. I have master’s degrees from both MSU (educational leadership) and the University of Florida (teaching).  I am also a graduate of the Michigan Political Leadership Program.  While serving on the board, I have completed several courses through the Michigan Association of School Boards in order to learn how to best serve our students.

I love Williamston.  I love our downtown and our back roads.  I love our winters and our summers and all the great things our community has to offer.  I appreciate our sense of community and look forward to our future. With my free time, I enjoy taking day trips with my family.  I also like to get outside and play, read, and cook.
