    It is an honor to be the Upper Elementary Principal. I have worked for the district 13 years and education is my passion. I graduated from the University of Missouri, St. Louis with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I also have a Master of Science in Education from William Woods University. I have most recently obtained my Educational Specialist’s Degree in Administration from Northwest University.

    My wife, Meredith Kliethermes, is the High School Cadet Advisor at Eldon High School. We have three daughters and a son, Cami, Quincy, Carly and Max. As a family we love attending Eldon Mustang sporting events, and watching University of Missouri basketball in Columbia. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, farming and coaching my girls’ in youth basketball.

    I strive to build relationships with every student. Watching students achieve goals they thought were impossible is a great accomplishment for them and the faculty. Creating an environment where students can learn and have fun is our focus.
