    Assistant Principal 

    I have lived in Ozark since my family moved here in 1987, while I was a 3rd grade student.  The schools are what brought my family to this community and what keeps my family here to this day.  I graduated from Ozark High School as a part of the Class of 1996.  I have taught 12 years in Ozark as a Math and Physical Education teacher and the 2017-18 school year will be my fourth year in administration; third at OHS.  Throughout my tenure, I coached Track & Field, Girls Basketball, and Cross Country.  We have an incredibly talented staff here at Ozark High School, and I am honored to be a part of it.  Here at the high school, I have many duties, but I primarily work with the junior class and coordinate our virtual learning (online) courses.


    My wife, Jill, is a 5th grade English/Language Arts teacher at Ozark North Elementary, and we have three sons, Rayce (7), Nash (4) and Cruz (1).  I enjoy spending time with them when I am not at school.
    I possess a lot of ‘Tiger Pride’ and am honored to be serving as a leader and educator in the Ozark School District.
