It is my honor and privilege to serve Oakes Public School District #41 as Superintendent.  I’m married to Nancy Steinhoff and we’ve called Oakes home for fifteen years.  Nancy and I have four children with the oldest two being in Fifth Grade.  My previous experience stems from teaching business/computers at Milnor Public School and being the Assistant Director of the Southeast Region Career & Technology Center in Oakes & Wahpeton.  I hold a bachelor’s degree from Northern State University in Business Education, a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from North Dakota State University, a specialist diploma in Educational Leadership from the University of North Dakota, and a doctor of education in Educational Leadership from the University of South Dakota.  If you have any questions, I encourage you to contact me via email at, by phone at 701-742-3234, or stop in at the school and visit in person.  Until then, I’ll continue to work with our great staff to exercise the OPS Mission: Achieving excellence by educating all students for tomorrow’s world.
