    I want to warmly welcome you to the 2018-2019 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 23 years as an educator, I taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grades and have served as principal in four schools in USD 259. The last 11 years I was the principal at Earhart Environmental Magnet.

    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.
