Welcome to Dawson Junior / Senior High School!

Serving students has been a passion that has at its foundation a very positive experience as a high school student in Robinson ISD.  My decision to enter education and coaching stemmed from the guidance provided by teachers that were authentically interested in their students academic development but also as a productive citizen.  

After attending Baylor University, I embarked on a teaching/coaching career spanning a decade.  Coaching and teaching in the classroom is at the heart of education and the connection with students and watching them grow and compete has always been very rewarding.  

After the millennium, I enrolled at Stephen F. Austin State University as a member of a district cohort through Cy-Fair ISD.  After completing the program, beginning a career in campus administration just seemed to be the next chapter in a career that began at Little Cypress-Mauriceville in 1991.  

Family has always been very important to me.  My wife Keri is a teacher at Hallsburg teaching 5th grade.  My oldest daughter Kamryn is a graduate of North Texas State University and now works independently in marketing. Makenzi, our middle child, is in medical school at Case Western University in the Houston Medical Center and our youngest Colby, attends the University of Oklahoma at Norman.  

My perception of Dawson ISD is that the individual person is respected and that attracted me to the district and it is my desire to help facilitate an environment that fosters academic and personal growth for teachers and students.  Our goal is to learn to compete and cooperate within the social framework of this wonderful country.  

Go Bulldogs!
