Welcome to my webpage. This will be my 7th year at Locust Grove High School. I am the Work Based Learning teacher. I taught previously at Union Grove High School.
I started teaching in 2002 at Union Grove High School in McDonough. I taught there for twelve years before joining Locust Grove HS. This is my 19th year in education. While at UGHS, I coached numerous sports including fastpitch softball, baseball, and football. In softball, I was the head coach of the 2012 AAAAA State Champion Fastpitch Softball team. I was also the 2012 AAAAA GA Dugout Club State softball coach of the year. I coached baseball for 11 yrs while there.
At LGHS, I have coached just baseball. Our Wildcats have a rich tradition of making it far in the playoffs and in 2016 we were the AAAA State Champions. That's my 2nd ring! I also enjoy working with the basketball and football teams being the scoreboard operator, spotter, and announcer.
In my own time, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching sports. I am an avid fan for the Atlanta Braves and the Georgia Bulldogs. I try play a little golf. in my free time. My wife, Eve, is also a teacher. She works at East Lake Elementary where she teaches 1st grade. My wife is very talented and a very good teacher!
I have two daughters whom I am very proud of. My oldest daughter also is a teacher at East Lake Elementary. This is her 6th year teaching! She graduated from the University of West Georgia just like her parents. I am so proud of her because she teaches so many young children every day! Her husband works for ADT.
My youngest daughter lives in Florida and owns a makeup/beauty business called "Dress up and Glow Up." She is also a seasonal worker for Disney. She touches so many people every day and uses her bubbly personality to show the love of Disney. I am so proud of her for being so bold and striving to work for a company that she loves. Her husband works as an engineer for a company in Tampa.
I am an active member of the First Baptist Church of McDonough where I serve as a Deacon there.
