Bio

Welcome!

 

This is my first year teaching. As anyone who knows me well would tell you I am an open book, however I do not like to talk about myself-- but since you came here I'll do my best to give some general information. I've lived in north Mississippi all of my life, excluding a brief stint living in Louisiana. I graduated from Olive Branch in 2005. I spent several years in college at Northwest, Mississippi State, as well as the University of Mississippi, where I was awarded my Bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing. 

In addition to teaching I am also the running backs coach with the football team. I've never played football, nor have I coached it prior to this year. However I am a very competitive person and possess a great deal of resources to excel at my role as mentor and coach.

What is important to me is the success of every young person I meet-- in whatever way they wish to define that word (success). 

I am a big proprietor of being honest. I will be the first to tell you that I don't have a lot of experience teaching or coaching. I am, however, someone you can count on in any circumstance to be present, be helpful, and if nothing else to listen. I am honored to be here, and will do my best to live up to and exceed everyone's expectations. Thank you for taking your time to read this.
