Mr. P's World!

Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 school year. It is truly my pleasure to have this chance to work with you and your student this school year. I look forward to serving you as we push your child to their best ability. 

A little about my educational background and goals, This is my sixth year of teaching and of me being here at West Hoke Elementary school. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I do plan to return for my Masters in the coming years. 

A little about me. I'm a very committed member of the community I live in, I'm involved with several different organizations in the community that work at educating, empowering, and growing better people. I love to work with people and bring out the best in them, encouraging, empowering and inspiring people to be their best. I have a second home in the gym, I love to workout as well, one of my hobbies actually. I'm an out doors person, and like to work with my hands to build things, work on cars in my free time, and cut grass whenever I have some to cut. I'm originally born and raised in Greenville, NC, "Home of the Pirates" E.C.U. I actually look forward to moving back there one day to help build and develop the community that raised and developed me to be the young man that I am. My greatest accomplishment that I just completed is becoming a married man.

This year's theme is "Diving Deeper." We aim to read, read, and read. We will read in math, reading, science, and social studies, we will us reading to build the bases of problem solving in many different aspects and we ask you the parent to also read with your student as well. We model the things we want to see in our students. As the year pick up, if you ever have any questions about anything feel free to contact me. (contact information is at the bottom of the page.)
