I’m a school principal at State Road Elementary in the School District of La Crosse in Wisconsin. I’ve been a school administrator at the elementary level since 2001, and before that I was an elementary classroom teacher in New Mexico and then Illinois. I have a talented and beautiful wife and two great kids (ages 14 and 10) who are also in the La Crosse District.
I love reading about education policy, politics that effect education, deep thinkers on education reform, and ways educators use technology to collaborate with one another. I also enjoy interacting with other educators and education allies about the profession and how we can make it a better system for all kids. Please drop me a tweet or email and I’ll chat back!
I am a PhD student in the University of Kentucky’s Educational Leadership program, with an emphasis on school technology leadership. I have finished all my doctoral coursework and am now (Fall 2016) working on my qualifying exams. Once I have successfully completed that (fingers crossed), my dissertation interest is in the area of how public schools in Wisconsin address student data privacy in their board policies.
The “I know this much is true” title for my blog is taken from the Wally Lamb book of the same title. It’s a great book about family history and the close and complicated relationships between brothers (I have two brothers myself). The title also captures what I try to share here. I’m not trying to be the expert on anything, just sharing my experiences and thoughts from the world of education.
