Special Education Teacher
Barry School

Welcome parents and students! I am currently in my 12th year in education, and my 5th with Platte County. Before joining the Barry team, I enjoyed three years teaching elementary special education in both the St. Joseph and Liberty School Districts. I am looking forward to helping students learn, grow, and lead this year!

I am a proud Bearcat having received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Northwest Missouri State University. Outside of my career, I enjoy spending my time with my wife (Jill) and three daughters (1, 7, and 9 years old) My hobbies include reading, exercising, and watching my Chiefs and Royals.
