Meet the Principal


Welcome to Voy Spears Jr Elementary!

At Voy Spears Jr Elementary, we promote success for all students. VSE’s dedicated staff work hard to provide learning experiences that enhance students’ academic, social and emotional needs. With the assistance and support of our parents and the VSE community, it is our goal to promote the achievement of all students.

I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Missouri where I majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Social Studies. As a 4th and 5th grade teacher in the Blue Springs School District, I completed my master’s degree from the University of Central Missouri in Elementary School Administration. After becoming a school administrator, I also finished my Doctorate in Education from the University of Missouri. This is my second year as the principal at Voy Spears Jr. Elementary. In addition, I am also an adjunct professor for the University of Central Missouri in their Department of Education. My wife, Karen, and I have three wonderful children. Kierra, Jackson and Maya are all students in the Blue Springs School District.

I believe that successful schools are built upon strong, trusting relationships. I strive to utilize all of our school community members to make this an optimum learning experience for our children. I have high expectations for our students, higher expectations for our staff and the highest expectations for myself. I understand the value of an outstanding education and experience and know the importance of the partnership between school, home and students working together. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to help your child be successful.
