Principal's Message

First, I want to tell you how excited I am to be the proud Principal of Ocoee Middle School! I have been overwhelmed by the warm welcome from members of the community and the support offered by the faculty. Ocoee is definitely a very special place.

I am confident that this will be an outstanding year for Ocoee Middle School. We are well staffed with some of the finest, most dedicated educators in the district supported by a forward thinking, cutting edge leadership team.

Many of you know my voice from phone messages over the last three years, or may have seen me at school functions, but I wanted to give you a more complete picture of your new principal.

I was born near Telluride, Colorado, grew up on a farm in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and have lived in central Florida for over 20 years. I worked my way through college as a carpenter and have done everything from waiting tables to training animals. My hobbies range from Mayan archeology to aviation and my favorite thing to do is boating on Lake Conway with my wife and two amazing daughters.

I graduated in 2001 from Southwest Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education, and continued my education earning a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Stetson University.

For the last four years, I have been part of a team dedicated to creating a world class high school preparatory experience for the students of Ocoee Middle School. As the Principal, my role has changed but the goals remain the same. We will continue the school's current trajectory with a focus on academic incentives, integrated technology, accelerated course work and positive cultural elements. Students attending Ocoee will be offered a very unique and enriching middle school experience at the Florida State Demonstration School for Technology. I am extremely humbled by the opportunity to lead our students to success and look forward to a wonderful partnership with parents and the community as we move onto the 2017-18 school year.

 
Gratefully,
