I have been married to my wife, Kristen, for 16 years this September. We have two children, Emma and Beau (Bo). I came to be a teacher as a second career. I spent my first 16 years working behind a pharmacy counter and got my start teaching in the technical school system where I taught for 3 years prior to coming to the public-school system. I became a TAPP teacher with Houston County School District in 2013. For the past 7 years I have taught Biology and Anatomy at Warner Robins High School. I grew up down the road in Fort Valley and graduated from Peach County High School. I later attended Mercer University for my bachelor's degree in Biology with a minor in Religious Studies. After Mercer, I attended Liberty University and earned a master's in theology then a master's in biology from Troy University. I am excited to be part of the Perry Panther family and look forward to a great year with you!
