Shortly after I received the honor of ASCD's OYEA award, Anderson Elementary School in Reno, Nev., where I was principal, celebrated its 50th anniversary with a grand gala. To kick off the fundraising efforts, I donated $5,000 of the OYEA award to the Anderson Literacy Fund, which that night netted a poetic $50,050.
I am currently the principal of Sheridan Elementary, a Title I school in Spokane, Washington. My wife, Mindy, and I established EducationHall, an education consulting service that provides support and professional development for schools and districts nationwide. The exposure provided by the OYEA award has offered me a platform to share and learn effective leadership and instructional methods. My latest project is a book geared to increase the supervisory and coaching effectiveness of school leaders that I am coauthoring with Alisa Simeral. I feel very strongly that the future of education needs some strong influences, and I hope to continue to provide that service.
