I have been the Principal at ELS since July 2016. I am delighted to have completed my 40th year in Lutheran education here in Maui at ELS!
I've been blessed to serve in Lutheran Christian schools in Port Huron, Michigan; Lincoln, Nebraska; Arlington, Nebraska; Kalispell, Montana; Cornelius, Oregon; North Platte, Nebraska; & Cloverdale, British Columbia, Canada!
You know you are in the right profession when you wake up in the morning with a smile knowing you get to do the work you love with a happy heart for the challenges that every day brings! I'm thankful to have the privilege to work with children, parents and staff. Yes, the Lord is good to me!
Barbara, my wife of 40+ years & I have 4 sons(their wives), and 4 grandchildren. I'm the second of four sons of an LCMS pastor. An especially fond memory for me is of a visit with my High School Principal while visiting Friendswood, Texas. When I told him I was an elementary school principal he grinned from ear to ear and said, "You have no idea how it pleases me to think of YOU sitting on the other side of the desk!" --- I used to see him-- lots!!
In my spare time I enjoy hunting & fishing. I'm learning to share my favorite swimming beach with others (the cove area at Kam III), as well as learning new activities like ukulele lessons with Mr. Winkler & his 3rd Graders!
