Our Principal


Welcome to Valley View Elementary School!

I very much enjoy being the principal of this fantastic school! Valley View students do difficult things and keep working even when things get hard. We are proud of our efforts and our achievement!

Both Tanya Engel and I came to Laramie from the State of Washington three years ago. We quickly found a home among friendly people and talented professionals. Our son Ben is a freshman at the University of Wyoming while daughter Ellie is a sophomore at Laramie High School. I trust that you will find educational opportunities in Laramie to be high-quality and easy to access just as we have.

Since our arrival I’ve learned to ski, started riding a motorcycle, and have been a local football referee for the past two seasons. Coming from the Pacific Northwest, my favorite teams aren’t the typical Broncos and Rockies:






You bet I’ll support the ‘Pokes as well!

Please do feel free to contact me with questions or thoughts about our school.
