I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2005.

I received my master's degree from Trevecca Nazarene University in 2010.

I added a middle grades endorsement in 2011.



I have been a teacher for 13 years, all at East Lake Elementary.  I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. This year I look forward to working with the best students and getting the most out of those students.


I grew up in Oklahoma and moved to Soddy Daisy when I was a freshman in high school. I have been here ever since and met my wife of 12 years in college. We both are teachers, she is a frist grade teacher at Allen Elementary. We have enjoyed lots of vacations (San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld, Mexico, cruises, Daytona Peach, Panama City, and the best of all Paris) but now we enjoy spending our time with our six year old daughter Briley and two year old daughter Baylor. They keep us busy when we aren’t at school!

I am a HUGE college football fan. I spend most of my Saturdays from September to January watching football, especially Oklahoma. I really like Michigan as well. My wife loves Tennessee, which I DO NOT like!!! I also enjoy watching the Chicago Cubs baseball team.
