One could say I was born to teach. My mother, sister and older brother are all teachers. I taught in the public education system for 18 years as an elementary teacher. We share a family passion for helping children discover the world around them while also learning to know themselves.

I’m thrilled to bring this passion for education to the families at the Primrose School of South Lebanon. My interest in early childhood education increased as my own children reached preschool age. I began looking at available programs for our children while observing the successes of my students who had attended early childhood education programs. I saw firsthand the correlation between quality early childhood education and later academic success. While I loved being a teacher, I wanted to become part of helping children build the foundation they need early in life to later excel. I believe Primrose is the best way to create lifelong learners who will grow up to be happy, adaptive adults that will shape and enhance our world.

Personally, I hold a Master’s degree in Curriculum Development and am currently pursuing a Doctoral degree in Early Childhood Development. My wife Valerie and I have two sons, Carter and Gavin. Valerie is also a small business owner in the Cincinnati area. We live for adventure together which currently involves restoration of an 1860s farm. We are both so excited to have your family join our Primrose family!
