Welcome to the web home of the Bacon Bears! It is my honor and pleasure to be this great school’s principal.

Philosophy
In short, I believe that all students can.  Period.  All students can learn, achieve, grow, explore, make good decisions, be safe, be respectful, be responsible, be successful…and have fun while doing it. 

What’s our part?  We strive to engage, equip, and empower – this is how we prepare students entrusted to our care for success and achievement.  A student who is engaged in learning, who can relate to the content and concepts being taught and shared, who feels comfortable exploring new ideas and asking questions, who isn’t afraid to make mistakes, who has been given the tools necessary for critical thought and problem solving, who has been given knowledge along with the understanding needed to properly apply that knowledge, who is able to test ideas and try different solutions, who can treat others with respect, who can find peaceful ways to resolve conflicts, who values and respects others, who wants to do the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing, who relates to others through understanding and empathy, who helps people, who wants to make a positive difference in the world around them - this is a student who will be successful in all areas of life.  This is what we believe, and this is what we desire for all our Bacon Bears.
 
All students can.  It is up to us (school, family, and community) to engage, equip, and empower them.  We work together to put our students in the best possible position to make the best possible choices.  When a child is trained in the way to go, they’ll have the foundation necessary to be successful in whatever they set their hearts and minds to do.  Together, we can do this.  Together, we will.  They are worth it.

I teach adult Sunday School at my church twice a month.  I’ve been out of the country twice on mission’s trips.  In the past, I’ve been involved in helping run youth group and young adults programs. My wife has organized the kid’s vacation bible school for a number of years, and I ran the adult’s vacation bible school for a year.
