A long, long time ago I attended Lake Brantley High School in Altamonte Springs Florida. I attended the University of Central Florida where I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. A few years later I earned a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from American Intercontinetal University. 


For 10 years after graduating from High School, I was a restaurant manager. I enjoyed making people happy by providing them with good food and great service. I realized that my God given talent was connecting with people, and due to the advice of a school principal, I decided to become a teacher. Best decision ever! I worked as a 5th grade teacher at Spring Lake Elemetary in Florida. Later, my family and I moved to South Korea to serve as Missionary Teachers. We spent 4 years in South Korea, and when our kids came back home to attend college, my wife and I moved to Abu Dhabi in the Middle East to teach High School. After three years teaching there, we just missed our family too much, and moved to Chattanooga TN. I have been teaching at this school for 3 years. It is a great place to teach. The teachers and students at East Lake are just awesome.
