Meet the High School Principal

I love Jesus!  I love Southside Christian students!  I love school families!  I love the excellent SCS teachers and staff!  I love my fellow leadership team members!   I love the divisional leaders with whom I serve!  I love Southside Christian School!  I love education!  Life-long learning and continuing education provide pathways for additional ways of serving the Lord Jesus Christ.  I am beginning my 40th year as an educator.  In the past, I have served families as an English teacher, coach, associate principal, principal, superintendent, and Christian school board member.  I have served in public schools (20 years) and Christian schools (20 years).  I love and I am SOLD-OUT for Christ-centered education; how freeing to be able to express our faith so openly at school, and to include Christ and biblical truth in all curricular and extracurricular programs!  Such does not mean that I am anti-public school; in fact, I hope and pray the public schools succeed, because the quality of our lives is directly proportional to the quality of public schools in our communities.  Let’s talk about how we can work together for students to discover their unique passions, abilities, and callings to God’s Kingdom work.  If you ever want to know what I am thinking, or how I am hopefully transforming into the likeness of Jesus Christ, please feel free to visit my blog at any time .  (Read here Dr. Bob’s Stouffer’s Blog) I want you to know that I take my responsibilities and my qualifications for this leadership position very seriously.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English from Winona State University in Minnesota (Summa Cum Laude).  I earned my Master’s degree and Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Northeast Missouri State (as a Fellow) and The University of Iowa, respectively.  I hold a Lifetime Professional Certificate from the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).  Let’s share this adventure together!  Please keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times!
