I started teaching at Longton,Kansas, Elk Valley HS in 1985. I taught there for 4 years. . I am originally from Linn and still have the family farm there. I raise cattle and sheep. I love to travel to learn about different kinds of agriculture.
My wife's name is Karen. We were married in 1989, just before moving here. We have one daughter, Karrie, who is a senior this year. We have several dogs, cats, sheep, cattle, a horse, chickens, and a racoon!
