    Principal
    Ponder Junior High

    I'm a two time graduate (Bachelor and Master Degrees) of the University of North Texas and I'm in my 21st year of education. My family continues to love being here in Ponder. My wife, Christi, teaches 2nd grade at Ponder Elementary. My son Hayden is in 11th grade, my daughter Grace is in 7th grade, and my daughter Kate loves 4th grade.  They all love being a part of the Lion community.

    As a graduate of Ponder High School it's very exciting to be a part of a tradition of excellence. My goal is to help provide students a safe environment in which to receive a quality education.

    Communication is a priority of all those who work in the Ponder school system. If there is anything I can ever do to contribute to the educational experience of your child please feel free to contact me.
