I continue to be honored and excited to be the principal of BLHS, the World’s Greatest High School!   BLHS has outstanding students and is blessed to have such supportive parents and community.  I am looking forward to continuing to partner with all stakeholders (especially students and parents) to help BLHS be the premiere high school in the state of Washington! It is my job to help guide the staff in supporting each and every student learn essential content and  skills  to earn a diploma and become career and college ready.  We (educators) have a moral imperative to ensure that every student is successful. 

I am entering my 20th year as an educator and my third year here at BLHS.  I have a strong background in improving classroom instruction, creating support systems to help students achieve, and ensuring no student falls through the cracks.  I LOVE the Seahawks, take every opportunity I can to go fishing, and spending time with my family. 

I am very family oriented and am the proud father of three kids ages 17, 15, and 13.  As a father I want only the best for my children and seek that every day.  I believe that every parent feels exactly the same.  This is a thought that is always on my mind and helps to guide the decisions I make every day.  My door is always open.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a concern about your student(s).  I am looking forward to serving this community!

I am excited to be starting my third year as part of the World’s Greatest High School Community!! This is my 20th year in education serving 16 years as an English and Social Studies teacher in Spokane and now going in to my third year as the Assistant Principal here at BLHS overseeing our 9th grade students. I love being an educator. I see value in every student and believe it is our job to guide, assist, and support each student to set high goals and achieve them. I have two daughters, Madeline 20 (completing her 2nd year in the Navy) and Lane, 15, who can’t wait to start her sophomore year at BLHS! I look forward to getting to know you this year, and I can’t wait to help support the work we’re doing at BLHS. Please don’t hesitate to connect with me with any questions, concerns, or input you may have. Go Panthers!

I am excited to be starting my first year as a Panther at Bonney Lake High School and in the Sumner School District. I have been in education for 16 years, 13 in the classroom as a Special Education teacher and the last 3 as a part of the administrative team in the Tahoma School District. As one of the three assistant principals at BLHS, I will oversee the 10th grade students, along with the departments of Special Education, World Languages, Physical Education, and Fine Arts. I strongly believe that through connections and relationships with students, we can help each student achieve their goals for their future while supporting teachers to meet the high standards of today! I am married with 2 boys (9 years old and 6 years old) who continue to shape me as a leader and drive me to make school a better place for every student so that each person can see themselves as successful in whatever direction of life they choose to take. I sincerely look forward to this coming school year and getting to know the Bonney Lake community. Feel free to reach out to me at any point. Go Panthers!

As an original staff member of the World’s Greatest High School, I am honored to have to opportunity serve Bonney Lake as an assistant principal.  Through our halls walk the world’s greatest students, educators, and families.  Every year I am increasingly humbled to be working with our students and families.  I began my tenure with the Panthers as a Social Studies teacher and as the head wrestling coach.  Prior to my time at BLHS, I was an educator in the San Francisco Bay Area.  My wife, daughter, and I love living in the Pacific North-West and in our Bonney Lake community.

This year, I will be working closely with our eleventh and twelfth grade students, student leadership, and with our ASB clubs and activities. Additionally, I will be coordinating our state testing efforts and our alternatives to discipline programs. 

Bonney Lake High School is the best kept secret in Puget Sound. I am excited to be a part of the positive and supportive atmosphere which is growing at BLHS.  This is a special place.  I am excited to see this change in our culture and climate. Our goal at BLHS is to create an environment where each and every person who walks our halls knows that they are cared for and that they can be successful here. 

You can find my office in Student Services.  Please feel free to contact me if there is ever a need. Go Panthers!

This will be your child’s Year of the Panther!  Everyone at BLHS is prepared to make certain our students enjoy leadership opportunities combined with supported academic challenges.  Although I am “new” to BLHS, I feel like it is homecoming.  I have served as an administrator at all three middle schools along with extensive work at our district’s eight elementary schools.  Professional recognitions include Principal of the Year, National Board for Professional Principal Standards, six years on the Association of Washington School Principals Board of Directors, and two years with the Washington state Administrative Professional Certification Panel.  I promise to support your child with a blend of district, state, and national professional experience.  On a personal level, my wife of 37 years and I are living a parents’ dream – our sons have completed college, have excellent jobs, and are happily married!  You will see me everywhere supporting Panther Power and, of course, your son or daughter.
