Welcome to Central Dauphin East High School!
It has been an honor and privilege to serve at Central Dauphin East High School as a teacher, coach, and assistant principal for over a decade. I am blessed to have the opportunity to transition to the role of head principal. My passion for East High thrives within the #BeGreat motto. We aim to #BeGreat every day in our actions.
I am excited about beginning my 18th year of education. My career in education has journeyed through the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The opportunity to serve at multiple levels has shaped my perspectives and capacity for leadership. Moreover, I find my greatest calling at the secondary level, specifically in high school.
I value education and the journey associated with becoming a lifelong learner. Educationally, I hold a Bachelor of Science, Masters of Science, and Masters of Education degrees. Additionally, I will complete my Superintendent PK-12 Letter of Eligibility (LOE) certification process this Fall and my Doctorate in Educational Leadership shortly after (Spring/Summer 2023).
As an educational leader, I believe every student, staff member, and stakeholder has value and purpose; thus, all share the responsibility of building up the lives of others. Additionally, my goal is to improve student outcomes by creating an environment in which every student and staff member has the opportunity to experience success.
Outside of my role as a school leader, I am a husband, father, coach/mentor, and doctoral student. Additionally, I am a Nationally Certified Performance Enhancement Specialist and USA Track and Field level 2 coach (Sprints/ Hurdles/Relays). I have served as a coach/trainer for over 15 years (Football/Track & Field/Personal Trainer) and enjoy giving back to the youth in this capacity.
Finally, I understand it takes a great team to accomplish significant tasks, and every day is an opportunity to improve. I believe that together we can navigate any obstacle and create opportunities for success. Additionally, through collaboration, we will be able to achieve the mission and vision of the Central Dauphin School District and EAST High school.
I look forward to working with all stakeholders to provide the opportunity to make education happen for every student.
