    Philosophy of Education

    Mr. Klein is excited at the opportunity to step into school leadership, stemming from his passion to help all of those who he meets to achieve great things. A summary of his philosophy of education is this: through the foundation of positive relationships, high expectations, and a strong school community, every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential every single day.

Over the past six years, he has been involved with coaching middle school and high school football, coaching basketball, serving as a Beta Club sponsor, and serving as the director of Madison Middle School's Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter. Personally, Mr.Klein enjoys watching the Bulldogs and Steelers play, high school athletics, exercising, traveling, fishing, and getting into God's word.
