About Me

The 2019-2020 school year will be my 14th in teaching. Social Studies has always been a passion of mine. It started with my Great-Grandpa, "Papa," telling me WWII stories. I majored in History in a small college, now a university, Warner Southern. I immediately started teaching Elementary school in Lake Wales, FL, while getting my Masters in Educational Leadership from Walden University.

In Florida, I met my lovely, beautiful wife, Faith. We were scheduled to have our first born in September 2009, but my son had other ideas. Lucas entered the world 3 months early, weighing in under 2 pounds. We decided to move back to my home of Darlington, SC. Lucas is now entering 5th Grade, wow, and doing great. We also have a daughter, Sarah, entering 3rd grade. She is our little gymnast, future Gold Medalist. She finished on the podium at Nationals in 2 events, and was Bronze All-Around in the Nation for her age group.

Looking forward to a wonderful year!!!
