Degrees and Certifications:
Experience I started my teaching career in Jackson County at Blue Ridge Early College. I taught there for 4 years before moving to Scotts Creek Elementary and Middle School where I taught for one year. After starting this school year at Scotts Creek, my wife and I moved back to Caldwell County to be near family. I started working at Gamewell Middle School this past October.
Favorite Educational Quote and Why
"It's a constant quest to try to be better today than you were yesterday and better tomorrow than you were the day before."
Why I Became An Educator
I have always had a passion for helping middle school aged children reach their potential. I also have a love for sports, and how they can boost motivation in the classroom. Sports teach us so many great lessons, but the work ethic that can come from playing them is my favorite part for students.
Favorite Places in Caldwell County
Lenoir Golf Club
I enjoy playing golf! It has become my favorite hobby since I got out of college.
