ADM Middle School Principal
Bachelor’s from Simpson College in English/language arts, speech communications, theatre
Master’s from Drake in school counseling and administration
Hello! We welcome you to our website to catch a little glimpse of our school district. This is my 15th year at ADM, and I can proudly say that I Love ADM! I especially love working with Middle School students! Our staff focus is “Relationships, Relationships, Relationships”. We feel that if we are connected together and are always striving to build positive relationships with our students and parents, everyone will succeed!
My background is in English, speech, and school counseling. Building relationships with kids also ties to my passion of reading. I enjoy reading “middle school” books with the goal of connecting the book with a student.
My husband, David, and I have four children – all in the ADM School District. We both grew up in small Iowa towns and love the “family feel” that ADM brings! We are all proud to be ADM Tigers!
ADM Middle School Assistant Principal
Bachelor’s from University of Northern Iowa
Master’s from Viterbo University in Administration
I grew up on a a farm in northeast Iowa and graduated from Sumner High School before moving on to the University of Northern Iowa. While in the classroom, I’ve taught middle and high school math – most recently Algebra, Formal Geometry, and Algebra II. During this time, I also coached several sports and was the offensive coordinator for the Waukee football team. After teaching for 20 years, I decided I was ready to take on a more formal leadership role and now split my days between the middle and high schools at ADM. My wife, Nan, and I spend most of our time transporting our two kids (Lizzy and Zach) and watching our events. When I do get free time, I enjoy hunting and fishing. We’ve been proud to call Adel home for the past nine years.
