Welcome to Hillcrest STEAM Academy.  I have the privilege of serving as your Assistant Principal.  I was born and raised in O’Fallon, Missouri.  After college, I relocated to the Kansas City area.  I am married (Raelynne) and we have a beautiful daughter named Kinley.
 
I developed a passion for teaching during my undergraduate studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  After my time in Columbia, Missouri, I moved to Kansas City to become a teacher.  During my time as a teacher, I developed a passion for Project Based Learning.  This style of learning and teaching provides the students with authentic opportunities for discovery. 
 
Our highly skilled teachers facilitate guided instruction that lead students to discovery and innovation.  Often times, they not only surprise me with their work, but they surprise themselves.  Hillcrest STEAM Academy has incredible potential and I feel very fortunate to be a part of this fantastic team.
