Santa Fe Elementary School

Bond 2018


      Welcome to another great year at Santa Fe!!!!! Coach Middleton and Coach Penny look forward to running, sweating, and learning. Mighty Milers has been replaced by Rising New York Road Runners, a running program sponsored by the same folks who do the New York City Marathon. I'm still learning all the details of the new program and if there are any significant changes, I'll let you know.  Please feel free to e-mail me ( with any questions or suggestions. My conference time is from 7:45 to 8:30.
      Now, more about me. This is my 17th year as an educator. I taught in the class room (2nd, 4th, and 5th) for nine years. I've coached 8th grade football and track in Killeen.  I also coached club soccer for 5 years. I even tried soccer refereeing, but decided the coaches and parents were, lets just say, a little too enthusiastic. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Jennifer, for going on 26 years. We have two children. Savana is 23, married, and working in California after serving in the Marines for four years.   Lily is my baby at 21 years of age and is starting a three year Physical Therapy program at Texas Tech. 
     I can't resist mentioning my grandson, George, just turned one August 7th.
