About Me:

Welcome to my part of the website - hopefully I can keep this up-to-date!!


This is my sixth year teaching at Richland R-1 Schools. I am the Business/Computers teacher - I also am the high school baseball coach, FBLA sponsor and advisor for The Rebel, our student yearbook. I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with the focus on Management from Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tenn. My lovely wife Kim (or Momma Kim as several of the students call her) have been married for 15 years with two little Rebels of our own. I am also the President of the Missouri Journalism Education Association, our statewide journalism group.


If you need to contact me you can do so via email at or on my cell at 573-931-3369.


As you will be able to see from the galleries on this site, I am extremely proud of the work that my students produce and I always strive to prepare them for what ever may lie ahead. In all four of my major business classes: Accounting, Business Tech, Business Management and Entrepreneurship students are required to create a resume, cover letter and references and must learn interviewing skills. These are skills and documents that the students will need the rest of their lives and some will need them, just as soon as they graduate.



Richland R-1 School recently had four students take home national photography awards from the JEA/NSPA National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. Senior Liza King, second to left, was awarded Superior in the Photography Portfolio category, designating her one of the best high school photographers in the nation. King also taught a journalism class while at the convention. Junior Jason Pinkley, left, took Excellent in Themed Photography, junior Allison Jones received Excellent in Sports Action Photography, and senior Kate Wyman was awarded Excellent in General Spot News Photography. Of the 384 overall national competitors in the photography write-off competition, less than 15% received either a rating of either Superior or Excellent. 

Always trying to teach something new to my photography students - feel free to use this guide for your staff as well. 
Why yes, that is country music superstar Garth Brooks being interviewed by Richland students Katie Pinkley and Emily Blunt at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, on Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017.
