Principal's Bio


BJES Learning Community,


What a privilege it is to be part of the BJES Learning Community! Serving as the principal at BJES is an incredible privilege that I do not take lightly. So you know a little about me, please feel free to read my short bio.

I was born and raised in Brandenburg, Kentucky. I have attended the University of Kentucky, Western Kentucky University, and the University of the Cumberlands. I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education.

After graduation, I started teaching at Custer Elementary where I spent seven wonderful years.  In my seven years at Custer Elementary, I taught Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade, Third Grade, Fifth Grade, and Fifth Grade Gifted and Talented. After my time at Custer Elementary, I had the privilege of working at Hardinsburg Elementary where I served as the Assistant Principal for one year. I am now beginning my 8th year at BJES. I have a Master's Degree in Education Administration and a Rank I as an Instructional Supervisor from Western Kentucky University.  I have recently completed my Doctorate in Educational Leadership.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Elisabeth almost 16 years, and I have five wonderful children Emily, Jon, Lindsay, Elijah and Aliyah. The Ben Johnson Elementary Learning Community is truly an awesome place to live and grow! Remember, at BJES, we believe in you! Go Wildcats!
