Subjects Taught
Mathematics 6


I grew up here in Chattanooga and attended Baylor School.  After high school, I recieved a B.S. degree in Business Administration from Samford University and a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Tennessee Technological University. 


I spent one year in as a teaching resident in the Project Inspire program through P.E.F. here in Chattanooga at Dalewood Middle School. I taught collaboratively taught 8th grade mathematics and algebra 1 during my residency. During my first year at Orchard Knob Middle I taught 7th grademathematics. This is my second year teaching here at Orchard Knob Middle School and I am enjoying teaching 6th grade mathematics.  


I am from here in Chattanooga and grew up in the Red Bank area.  I have been married for 22 years and have worked with young people for over 20 years.  It has been a blessing to be involved with three different youth leadership programs. I have had the opportunity to be a motivational speaker. I am a coach in football, wrestling and baseball. Some of the people who had the greatest influences in shaping my life were both teachers and coaches.  Through the influence and guidance of these people in my life, I recieved the valuable gifts of personal character, the value of a work ethic,  an indomitable spirit that never gives up on myself, and the knowledge that I could do anything I set my heart to accomplish.  It is my firm belief that within the walls of our school the future leaders of tomorrow are being forged and molded.
