Being a proud graduate of Gilbert High, Class of 1991, it is with much excitement that I look forward to serving this school community in an administrative role. Though I came to GHS in January 2008 as a math teacher my service began in 2004 in a coaching capacity. Over the years I have had the pleasure of coaching basketball (girls and boys), middle school football, softball, and boys golf. I have two children presently attending Gilbert schools and my wife teaches at Lake Murray Baptist Kindergarten pre-school. My family has deep roots in Gilbert as my parents are proud graduates in the Class of 1966 and we have enjoyed serving at many Peach Festivals over the years. I look forward to a GREAT school year!
