I want to warmly welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year! It is my sincere pleasure and honor to serve as principal at Kensler Elementary. I am looking forward to partnering with you as we travel through the school year together.
I have lived in Wichita my entire life and attended schools in USD 259 throughout my educational career. My wife Paula is a 2nd grade teacher at Peterson Elementary. We love the outdoors and are always looking for a new household project to work on together!
I received my Bachelor's degree and teaching certificate from Newman University and my Masters Degree from Wichita State (Go Shockers!).
During my 26 years as an educator, I taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grades and have served as principal in four schools in USD 259.
As your principal, my top priority is ensuring a safe environment for all of our staff, students and families. I also want to make sure every student has a great educational experience to reach his or her fullest potential.
Please feel free to stop by my office anytime to say hello, I'm looking forward to meeting you!
I wish your family, and especially your student, great success during this new school year.
