  I am new to the board in 2021. I am a native Oregonian, born in Bend and raised in La Grande. After graduating from LHS in 1980, I attended OSU and have been in the Corvallis/Philomath communities ever since. I taught math at Philomath Middle School for one year, and then moved to PHS, where I taught advanced Math for 30 years. I “retired” in 2016, and have been a substitute teacher for the past five years, mostly in this district. Both of our children graduated from PHS, and we were always pleased with their education in the district. With 36 years in Philomath education, I have a wealth of experience to draw on which I hope will help me in making informed decisions for the school district. Even though I was a math teacher, one of my primary emphases is supporting and expanding CTE opportunities for our students in the district.

Term Expires: June 2023

   I have served as a board member for the Philomath School District since 2019. My wife and I have two daughters who attend schools in our district. I grew up in Philomath where I attended Philomath schools for the entirety of my K-12 education and graduated from Philomath High School. I believe serving on the school board is an opportunity to give back to our community and the current students in our district.
