After graduating from Fort Hays in the summer, I taught 9th grade Drivers Ed and 12th Grade American Government//Economics for 14 years at Eureka, Kansas. I was head basketball coach and head middle school track. I also served as the Assistant Athletic Director for 6 years. I left Eureka to teach and coach basketball and track in Burlington. I later added Cross Country to my coaching endeavors. I’ve been in Burlington for the last 15 years. I am beginning my 30th year in education.
I have been married thirty-two years and have two children. My daughter, Lacie Stuckey is married to Darrell Stuckey. They have two children, Jayton (3) and Kinsley (18mos). They live in San Diego where my daughter cares for my grandchildren and my son-in-law plays football for the San Diego Chargers. My son Tyrel is married to Jessica Reed (Menard). They live in Lawrence, Kansas. Tyrel works as a Physical Therapist and Jessica works as an Occupational Therapist. My wife Debbie teaches science at Burlington Middle school. She is beginning her 15th year at Burlington and her 21st year in education.
I look forward to the start of the 2016-17 school year
I enjoy spending my time with my three grandchildren.
