About Our Principal
I have worked in education for twenty years and this is my sixth year as principal of Laytonville High School. I am honored to be working with a committed, caring, and professional staff here at Laytonville High School.
I received my Master of Science in Education Administration from National University and my Bachelor of Arts from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I am a passionate believer in hands-on experiential learning, and wrote my master’s thesis on school-wide implementation of Project-Based Learning. I am proud of our five different Career and Technical Education Pathways, our school’s implementation of Project Based Learning, and the close family relationships that knit our school together.
On my spare time I enjoy time with my wife and two daughters, forestry projects, tending to my orchards, wild-crafting and food preparation. I am impassioned by the prospect of LHS students moving into the world and making positive impacts
