About Me

I am excited to be starting my 9th year here at Summit Middle School and my 23rd year in the teaching profession.  I have spent all of that time teaching and working with students in Middle Schools. This age group is my passion and I enjoy getting to know as much as I can about the students and families that I get the opportunity to interact with.  I feel extraordinarily lucky to be allowed to work on a daily basis with the amazing staff, students and families that enter our building.  SMS is an amazing place to work and to send my own children.

My wife, Betsy Buerk, is also a teacher in the district.  She works as a reading specialist at Dillon Valley.  I have two children who will be attending SMS this year, Hank in 8th grade and Elle in 6th grade. My son Charlie is now in 9th grade.

I look forward to a great 2019-2020 school year and I encourage you to call me with any questions or concerns you may have.

Hello all!  Welcome to the awesome community that is Summit Middle School.  I am proud to say that I am starting my 15th year at SMS and my 18th in education.  This is my fifth year as an Assistant Principal.  Previous to this position, I taught Humanities and Science at every grade level, but most recently in 6th grade for several years.  I loved the classroom and the great teachers I got to work with as a classroom teachers and continue to love working with our amazing staff, students, and parents as an administrator!

I have lived in Summit County for the last 14 years.  I have two children, Evie and Otto. Evie is in 2nd grade this year and Otto is in Kindergarten! I am continuously amazed at the Summit County community and our commitment to creating change to improve Summit County living!

I am looking forward to continuing to improve our community and welcome in anyone that would like to be a contributing member of the SMS team, as a parent, community member, or staff member.  Thank you for your continued support of our students!
