Welcome to Scioto Elementary School! It is an honor to serve this community as the Principal of Scioto. I have been an administrator in Teays Valley for 13 years. I am very proud of the work we do here and for the quality education we provide all students. This is certainly a special place and I'm grateful to be a lead learner in our school district.
My wife and I live in Grove City and have 3 wonderful boys. We enjoy spending time outdoors as a family and stay busy attending our boys' sporting events. I am a big OSU football fan - GO BUCKS! I also enjoy exercising, traveling and spending time outdoors.
At Scioto Elementary, we have three values, which are TEAMWORK, OWN THE MOMENT, and PASSION FOR GROWTH. We know what the behaviors are that model what we value and we know and understand what the outcomes are going to be. At Scioto, we refer to these as our VBOs (values, behaviors, and outcomes) and these are written into our culture playbook. It is our intention to educate the whole child. We know that to reach a child's mind, we must first reach their heart. It is our goal to help each student be the best version of themselves. Developing the mindset of our students is just as important as developing academics. We help our students to understand E+R=O or Event + Response = Outcome. We teach our students that they only control their response. We own our R! At Scioto, we do the work required to attain great results and we practice discipline-driven or "on path" behaviors to achieve greatness. I'm extremely proud of our Scioto staff and grateful to learn alongside them. They model our VBOs and truly love and care for the students they serve. We know that family partnerships are critical to a student's success. Helping our students live our values of Teamwork, Own the Moment, and Passion for Growth starts with conversations and support at home, so THANK YOU for partnering with us to help your child be successful!

or you can call our school directly at 740-983-5057. I'm looking forward to continuing my passion for growth here at Scioto and building strong family partnerships with each of you.
