Hello Panthers!

I am entering my third year as principal of Round Lake High School.  If this year is anything like the past two, it will be a fantastic year.  We have added many classes and created new opportunities for students to build a better connection to the school.  My goal, as principal, is to assure that each student is provided an experience that prepares them for their next stage in life, whatever that might be. 

I have been in education since 1994.  Eight of those years were spent in the classroom as a social studies teacher.  As an administrator, I have been a department chair, assistant principal, director of teaching and learning, and now principal.  I have also coached a number of sports, but soccer is where I spent most of my time when I was coaching.  I received my bachelor’s degree in political science from Northern Illinois University and then attended North Central College to obtain my teacher certification.  I went on to gain my master’s degree in educational leadership from Northeastern Illinois. Currently, I am taking doctoral classes in educational leadership through Concordia.  I live in Gurnee with my wife, Debra, and daughter, Lani, who is a junior at the University of Illinois.
