Principal's Message

      The 2015 summer has just begun and it is certainly not the start we have been looking forward to the last couple of weeks.  The flood that has devastated the Wimberley Valley, Blanco, San Marcos, Martindale and all the communities downstream forced a non-traditional finish to a great school year.  I would like to thank all of the students, parents, teachers, staff and community members who have worked tirelessly to cleanup and begin the rebuilding process for this GREAT COMMUNITY.  I have never been more proud to be a Wimberley Texan!  The surrounding communities have also been very helpful in providing donations, time and equipment to helping our cause, THANK YOU!  As we move into summer, the time to volunteer and work will continue as do preparations for making the 2015-2016 school year fantastic.  Enjoy your summer, work for the benefit of our wonderful community and be ready for a great start of a new school year.  Please watch the website and twitter for updates on registration and meetings.  Have a SAFE summer that is full of quality family time!   

      I am finishing my first year as Principal at WHS and my thirteenth year in Wimberley ISD. Our goal at WHS is to ensure a positive, challenging and safe learning environment for all students.  We will provide a quality education ensuring our students will be prepared for post-secondary learning while becoming productive citizens in our evolving society. 

 Personal Information

     I made the decision to go into education while attending and subsequently graduating from Needville High School. My desire to work in education continued during my undergraduate studies at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Studies with a Biology Minor; I earned a Masters Degree in Education in 2000 and an Educational Administration Certification in 2002 from Tarleton as well. Before coming to Wimberley, I served as a science teacher and a coach at Glen Rose Junior High for four years. I then moved to Wimberley where I spent the first four years teaching biology and coaching football, powerlifting, and track at the high school. I worked as the Assistant Principal at WJHS in 2006-2007, HS Assistant Principal in 07-08, JH Principal from 2008 – 2014 and now WHS Principal. When not in school, I love to spend time with my wife, Carrie, our ten-year old daughter Claire and our four-year old daughter Josie. I appreciate and look forward to working with the students, parents, and faculty of Wimberley High School.
