Hello, parents and students of Riverside Middle School.  This year I will be teaching Health and Physical Education.  I am entering my fourteenth year of teaching Health and PE and greatly enjoy what I do. I am a graduate of Jamesville High School and East Carolina University.  I currently hold a Bachelors degree in Physical Education and  a Masters degree in Health Education.  I am married with two children, Blake and Kalyn.  Over my career I have taught at Jamesville Middle/High, Riverside High, Rodgers Elementary and now have found a home here at Riverside Middle.  Until a few years ago I coached basketball, volleyball and softball at various schools and on various levels, but have decided to take a break to enjoy afternoons with my kids.  In my free time I love spending time with my family, shopping and being outdoors or enjoying sporting events.  I am excited to begin this year and I look forward to a great year here at Riverside Middle School!
