I have had the pleasure of being the principal at Adams Central Junior/Senior High School since the fall of 2005. I am entering my thirty-ninth year in education. I began my educational career at Sandy Creek Public Schools in 1980 as a History teacher and coach. In 1999, I became the Junior/Senior High School Principal at Wood River Public Schools and was there for six years before leaving to become the Junior/Senior High School Principal at Adams Central. I have endorsements in 7-12th grade Social Science and Physical Education, a Masters Degree in 7-12th grade Administration, and a K-12 Specialists degree. I have an unwavering passion for children. My joy each and every day is observing teachers, coaches, and sponsors interact with and educate our students. I am continually pleased with the results I see and am hopeful for the future of our country because of the potential I see in our youth.
