Mr. Ackmann

I will be starting my 24th year in education and my 9th year at Princeton.  I feel very privileged to be a part of the Princeton ISD family!  I grew up in Dallas and went to Lake HIghlands High School.  I went to college at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa where I graudated in 4 years as a triple major in Business, Corporate Communications, and Journalism.  Immediately after graduating college I returned home to Dallas to work in the banking and finance industry, and then later worked in France for a short time.  Although I enjoyed my time in the banking and finance industry I felt a calling to work with young people so I decided to pursue my teaching certification through North Texas and began my teaching career in 1999.  Since then, I have taught at W.T. White, Richardson, Creekview, Frisco Heritage, and Haltom.  I currently live in McKinney with my wife, who is also in education, and our two children.  I am the head boys soccer coach at Princeton and also sponsor the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
