    Welcome back to a new school year !
     
    I am excited to be able to serve your student here at WMS. This is my 13th year teaching, and my 2nd year at WMS.
     
    A little history of who I am - After graduating high school, I joined the US Marines. Upon completion of my service duties, I went to a Technical college and studied Heating and Air Conditioning and worked in that field for a while. After a few years, I went to college at Southern Tech where I received a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Management. I was also the captain of the baseball team while there. I went back into the HVAC field for several years before I started coaching high school baseball and teaching high school mathematics. I have also coached softball, ms basketball, wrestling, and soccer. While teaching, I earned my MS degree in Kinesiology and Coaching Management.
     
    I have been happily married to my soulmate - Debbie for 23 years now. We have 3 kids - Elizabeth is 22; Ashtin is 20; and Harrison is 17. Both of the girls work for the school system here - Elizabeth is a 3rd grade teacher at Tussahaw Elementary and Ashtin is a Kindergarten Para-pro at Cotton Indian Elementary. Harrison has just started his Junior year at Union Grove high school.
     
    We have 2 dogs - Jake a border collie/poodle mix that thinks he runs the house and Buck a black lab that loves to play ball; 3 cats - Beau, Amy, and Camo; and 4  birds. 
     
    We love athletics - especially softball - each of the girls played ball in college and have helped coach for a few years. We like to attend the Braves games and like to go camping as a family. We also enjoy fishing a whole lot ! Harrison and I like to spend our free time in the fall in the woods hunting or on a lake fishing or just spending time together.
