I am proud to be the principal of the amazing staff and students at Shea Middle School. My mission is to create environments where people can do their best work. We do that at Shea through building quality relationships with our community and holding our students to high expectations in academic growth and social/emotional learning.
I have close to 25 years of experience in education and the arts, most of that at the middle school level. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from the University of Arizona and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I have taught band/choir/drama from Kindergarten-12th grades. I have been an administrator for 9 years as a grant manager, assistant principal, and principal. I have four children of my own, one of which is starting his career this year as a 6th grade math teacher!
Outside of school, I serve as the board chairman of a non-profit theater company and has acted and directed in productions with that organization throughout the years. I also keep active in music composition, composing music for short films and commercials.
I am grateful for the opportunity to work in the Shea community. Please feel free to contact me at school if you need anything.
In Your Service,
