Subjects I Teach: Social Studies
I was born in Griffin, Georgia on August 8, 1988. I grew up playing sports in elementary and middle school and started focusing on baseball and football once I got to high school. In high school, my favorite teacher was my Latin teacher, Todd Benz. His ability to make learning fun and the relationships he was able to build with myself and my classmates drove me to become interested in Roman, Greek, and Egyptian history. I graduated from Spalding High School in 2007. Once I got to college, I realized that I was interested in working with kids, and with my prior interest in history and my love of sports, teaching and coaching was what I wanted to do. I graduated from Mississippi State University in the fall of 2012 and substitute taught for a semester in Spalding County before getting my first teaching job at Heritage High School in Rockdale County. I taught there for two years and coached football and baseball before coming to Union Grove.
