I am teaching language arts, writing, science, and geography for the 2018-19 school year. This will be my 1st year teaching in Clarke County. Previously, I taught in Loudoun County.

I have lived in Winchester for 18 years. My wife and I relocated from South Carolina. I have three children; Tyler, Luke and Katey. The oldest child is at Virginia Tech and the other two ar at James Wood High School. I have a background in Business Management and was a Supervisor at a manufacturing plant In Charlotte, NC for 10 years. I had always wanted something more fulfilling. I went back to school and earned my Masters of Education from Old Dominion. I have been a teacher for Clarke County Public School System for the past six years.
