Georgia Studies (8th Grade)


I have an Associate of Arts from Truett-McConnell College and a Bachelor's of Arts from Mercer University. I graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity. In 1995. I graduated from North Georgia College and State University with a M.Ed. in middle grades education. In addition I graduated from Lincoln Memorial University with an Ed.S. in school leadership.


After working six years in higher education at Reinhardt College and Truett-McConnell College, I entered public school teaching in 1994.  I have taught fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.  I have taught every subject, but by far my favorite is social studies. I am certified for middle school social studies and high school history.  Along the way I have coached softball, football, baseball, and wrestling. Without question Georgia studies has been my career and hobby. 


My wife is Kim Wilkes, a fifth grade teacher at Mt. Yonah Elementary School.  I have two children, Kerby and Jordan, they are both college students  My hobbies include, hiking reading, running, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, gardening and camping. If it's outside I probably like it. Our pets include dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and sometines goats.

I am also the pastor of Chattachoochee United Methodist Church in Helen, behind Cool River Tubing.
