Welcome to our school district.

It is an honor to serve as the Superintendent for the Parker Unified School District. I have worked as a teacher, coach, and administrator for the past 39 years. I have been married to my wife,
Vicki, for 42 years. We have 4 children and 10 grandchildren. After teaching and coaching in Ohio for 4 years, my wife and I decided to have an adventure. That adventure was moving to Parker, Arizona.
So in 1980, we sold everything in Ohio and moved our family to Parker. I have never looked back.
I began teaching at Parker High School along with serving as an assistant varsity football coach
and head wrestling coach. After 7 years, I moved into administration. I served 1 year
as Assistant Principal at Wallace Elementary, before becoming Principal at Le Pera Elementary.
I served in that capacity for 13 years and then became the Assistant Superintendent. In 2011,
I was named Superintendent. I have thoroughly enjoyed and am proud of the 35 years
I have served the students and parents in our community.
