I was born in Chicago and spent the early part of my childhood in the Midwest, but moved to the Huntsville area and officially converted to a Southerner! I attended Liberty University to pursue a career in education but ended up operating several steakhouse restaurants before getting into teaching. I married my high school sweetheart and we have 3 beautiful children who are all at Owens Cross Roads School this year.
I began my teaching career at the middle school level as an English teacher and a wrestling coach in Virginia. I enjoyed teaching students how to become better communicators and how to think for themselves. I wanted my students to be grounded in their community but able to think with a global perspective. When I came to Owens Cross Roads, I was thrilled to find a similar culture that emphasized joining with the community to promote life-long learning.
I thoroughly enjoy reading and I love to travel domestically and abroad. I teach Sunday School to preschool kids at Rivertree Church and enjoy spending time with my family. If I can ever be of any service, please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
