I am excited to be returning to Waco Elementary. I grew up here in the Waco area,

where my family and I still reside, attend church, and have deep roots in the community. My wife and I both attended Waco as students and Waco have been home

to me in many different ways throughout the years. First, as a student, a bus

working with each of you.
