Greetings St. John's Academy Families and Friends!
I am very excited to have been recently chosen to serve as the new principal at such a wonderful school. For the past twenty years, I have been employed as a college basketball coach throughout the upper Midwest, including six years at the University of Jamestown. On the surface, the leap from college coach to elementary principal may appear to be a large one, however, for many years I have felt the call and desire to work with the Catholic Church. I’m passionately in love with Christ’s church and am a strong advocate for the quality education offered through Catholic schools. My wife, Jodi, and I have four children (Katelyn, Leah, Joe and Andrew), who have been enrolled in Catholic schools whenever possible. We have seen firsthand the incredible impact and experience offered through strong Catholic schools.

This is an exciting time at St. John’s Academy. I am looking forward to assisting in the process of establishing a strong future for our school that will span generations to come. My family and I are looking forward to meeting and working with you all.

I am truly honored to be the Vice Principal and Technology Director at St. John’s Academy. I joined the St. John’s Academy family many years ago as a second grade teacher. I absolutely LOVED every year in second grade and am thankful I had the privilege to work with so many young children. Another area I am VERY passionate about is technology. Currently, I have the opportunity to serve in a position which allows me to work with children, focus on technology, and share my faith on a daily basis, while being surrounded by great co-workers. How great is that?!?! I am excited to share my vision that technology is essential in guiding our students toward educational excellence. I look forward to working with all students, staff, parents and community to make St. John’s Academy the best it can be. Thank you for visiting our web site.
