About Me:

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


This is my seventh 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 16 years with two little Rebels of our own. I am also the Vice-President of the Missouri Journalism Education Association, our statewide journalism group.

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 whatever 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’s The Rebel yearbook staff recently received 14 total awards during the 2019 Quill & Scroll National Yearbook Contest, including four Sweepstakes (first place) Awards. The yearbook staff as a whole also received the Blue and Gold Award Staff Excellence for Comprehensive Visuals along with various photography and writing awards. Posing for the photo are, front left: Editor-in-Chief Allison Jones, 2019 graduate Kate Wyman, and Page Editor Alesia Eaton. Back, from left, 2019 graduates Emily Blunt and Liza King, Photo Editor Dacie Ritch, and Production Coordinator Devin Duffie. Ritch, Duffie, Blunt, and King all received Sweepstakes Awards for being the overall winners in various photo categories. Ritch received the most awards of any student in the contest, with seven, including: one sweepstakes, two second places, two third places, and two honorable mentions – all for photography.

Always trying to teach something new to my photography students - feel free to use this guide for your staff as well.
