Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited about another great year at Hampton! I have been teaching for 27 years. I got my start at Marrero Middle School, a suburb of New Orleans, and after a couple of quick, exciting years moved to Tampa, FL. I spent 10 great years at Hillsborough High School. The next 10 years I was right down the street at Luella High School.
Of Course I was not by myself! I have enjoyed this adventure with my wife of 34 years, Melissa Roberts, also a teacher at Hampton! We have 5 kids from ages 31 to 18!
Melissa and I both attended Auburn University and with our son graduating from Auburn in May 2015 our family is now a three generation Auburn family!!! WAR EAGLE!!! I did my graduate studies at NOBTS in New Orleans and University of South Florida in Tampa.
More than anything I am ready to teach some history! I am a lifelong learner and there is nothing I enjoy more than exploring Chickamauga Battlefield, walking down Auburn Ave. being in awe of all that happened there, or sitting in my chair or at my desk spending an evening or a day studying US History! It is a privilege to be at Hampton with each student, their parents and to be a part of a great personalized learning community.
