It doesn’t matter whether the absences are excused or unexcused — each missed day represents missed learning time. Missed days add up quickly: When a student misses as few as two days a month, that’s 10% of the school year. This increases the risk of academic and social-emotional struggles. (2 absences a month x by nine months = 18 days/10% of missed school days in a school year.)

Our Principal

I am a proud husband and father of three girls. My roots run deep in Central Oregon as I grew up in Powell Butte and then moved promptly back to Central Oregon shortly after finishing my Master’s degree at Western Oregon University. Personally, I am an unwavering Oregon State Beaver fan and alumnus. I love to fly fish, hunt, coach basketball and softball, read and work with my hands.
 I have had the pleasure of teaching, coaching, advising and being a school leader at the High School, Middle School and Elementary levels for the past 17 years. My passion for people, education and love of supporting the growth of all students has always driven me to seek creative ways to support the wonderful professionals and families in our community. It is an honor and privilege to serve the John Tuck and Redmond School District families. I love getting to know each family and partnering with them to help each student find their inner drive for learning and life. I look forward to many more years supporting the students, families and professionals in the Redmond School District. We are truly fortunate to live and grow together in Redmond!”
