Teacher Biography

         My name is affectionately known as Mr. 'B'.  I am the Elementary School Counselor for Pickett Elementary School.   I was born in Quantico, Virginia (Home of the Marine Corps).   My wife and I have two sons and six grandchildren (4 girls and 2 boys; 2 of the girls are twins that do not look alike).  My wife and I have a long-haired Himalayan cat named 'Tia', and 'Tia' rules the house.
         I have Bachelor of Science degree in Education, a Masters of Arts degree in Education / Counseling, and an additional Masters of Science degree in Education / Counseling.  I am a member of the Chi Sigma Iota (an international honor society), a National Board of Certified Counselor (NCC), and a host of other professional and civic organizations.

         My life and professional experiences aid me in assisting our students with their concerns each day.  I welcome the opportunity to talk with you (as a parent / guardian) or with your child to try to answer any questions you might have.  Feel free to call me or come by my office and see another way that Pickett Elementary school helps your child be all that he or she can be.  Thank you.
