2020 will be my first year in Augusta and I will be teaching 6th grade Computer Applications, 7th grade Design and Modeling, and 8th grade Automation and Robotics. I am excited to be a Blue Jay!
I started teaching at El Dorado High School in the fall of 2006 where I taught Federal Government, Sociology, Economics, American History, Advanced Placement American History, and Teaching As A Career.
I have an amazing wife (if you swing by the library, you’ll see) and 2 children that both attend Garfield Elementary. We have lived in Augusta for the past 13 years and are so excited to finally be a part of the family!
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, play guitar, woodworking, and anything wrestling.
