I am married to Candice Norris. I have three children, Madighan 11, Killian 6, and Kinzley 6. We also have a dog named Shadow. We have lived in Hays Kansas since 2004.
I LOVE gardening. I am passionate about teaching but if could spend my days doing anything else it would be to play in the dirt and grow things. I love to experiment growing all kinds of different plants. I’ve had success growing things like amaranth, quinoa, Peruvian purple potatoes, and Czechoslovakian black peppers. When time allows I also enjoy fishing. I’m a BIG fan of Kansas reservoirs! My favorite reservoirs are Webster, Kirwin, and Wilson. And please don’t hold it against me, but I’m a HUGE Broncos fan. Yep, I love the Russell Broncos, but I’m a Denver Broncos fan.
