It is an honor to be principal at Monocacy Elementary School.  I am originally from Abbottstown, PA.  I received my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education from Penn State University.  In 2008 I received my Master's Degree in Administration from McDaniel College.  My career began at Henry G. Ferguson Elementary School in Prince George's County where I taught 4th and 5th grades for 7 years.  In 2007 I became the Instructional Specialist at William A. Diggs Elementary School in Charles County.  I spent the last 6 years (3 as vice principal and 3 as principal) at C. Paul Barnhart Elementary School in Charles County (2010-2016). 

I have a wonderful wife and two phenomenal boys.  There is nothing more I enjoy then spending time with my family. 

I BELIEVE that every child can be successful.  I will be an advocate for every student, and work tirelessly to help each child reach their maximum potential.  I make every decision based on what I would want for my sons.  A strong parent-school partnership is essential, and I look forward to working with all of our families.
