Subjects Taught
8th Grade Language Arts


June 1993, graduated with a B.S. degree, magna cum laude honors, from the University of South Alabama. I was also the Language Arts Student of the Year that year for the university.


I have taught at the two best middle schools in the county. In 1993, I began my career at Lott Middle School (back then, it was Citronelle Middle). This will be my eleventh year at Alba.


I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1989, and we have a lovely daughter, two pampered cats, and two destructive dogs. We are life-long Alabama football fans. Being a Christian, I don't preach to my students, but I do pray for them. A day does not go by that I do not read for pleasure, and it breaks my heart that students don't have the same passion for reading that I do. It is my goal that students will catch that fever.

I was the Language Arts Student of the Year for U.S.A. in 1993, where I graduated magna cum laude. I work as hard for my students as I did to earn those honors--harder, really.

I check my e-mail at least twice in a school day, and I check it on weekends and holidays, too.
