for Marble Falls ISD. He is humble and kind, and he has a heart for every child’s success. He has

making; all while loving every child, staff, and community member in a way that inspires them to be
their very best. He listens and cares deeply. He is honest and genuine. He has a deep knowledge of
the educational institution, but, more importantly, he is driven by a set of core values and faith that
he is working toward something greater than himself or any one of us.”
