Hello TRES Wolf Families,
I grew up in California, not far from San Francisco. I graduated from Palo Alto High School and went on Tulane University where I majored in Psychology. I then attended the University of Kentucky, where I earned a Master’s Degree in Education and an Educational Specialist Degree in School Psychology. I have served public schools in Kentucky, California, and Washington as a School Psychologist, School Counselor, Behavior Specialist, Program Developer and Special Education Supervisor. Prior to coming to SVSD, I worked for the Bellevue School District for 12 years in various roles. I graduated from the Principal Certification Program through the City University of Seattle in 2021.
My wife, Mary, and I have lived in Fall City for 11 years and we love the Snoqualmie Valley community. Mary is a chef who teaches cooking classes to children and adults. We have seven children (six boys and one girl). We enjoy baseball, hiking, camping and car racing.
I am honored to serve as the Assistant Principal here at Timber Ridge.
