Principal's Message

Beechwood Family,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction.  My wife Danielle and I couldn’t be more honored to serve this community.  Our five children (Ana 10, Elizabeth 7, Olivia 6, Isabel 4, and Isaiah 1) keep us extremely busy, on our toes and FULL of joy! 

I am beginning my 13th year in education, and my second as Head Principal at Beechwood Elementary.  I spent 9 years in the classroom as an English teacher and basketball coach.  I was an Assistant Principal and Athletic Director for 2 years as well.  I have served on many committees and helped with countless initiatives.  The most important thing I could say of my career to this point is that I have impacted students, staffs and communities in a positive way.    

As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.  Please feel free to call the school anytime you have questions or concerns.  If I am not available, I will be happy to return your call as soon as possible.
