About Me

    I am a ninth year High School Mathematics Teacher - I began teaching in February, 2007 here at Athens Drive High School.  I am thankful to be a teacher sponsor of two clubs at Athens: FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) & Revive (a student-led weekly lunch Bible study).  I graduated from N.C. State University in December, 2006, studying there for 2 1/2 years after attending Wake Technical Community College for 2 years.  I am now back at NC State aiming for a Masters Degree in HS Math Education.  My sweet wife of over 10 years graduated from UNC-Greensboro and taught Health & Physical Education at Penny Road & Green Elementary, Woods Charter, and at Wake Tech.  We have the cutest boy ever born, Peter, 6, and a sweet spunky girl named Grace who is 4.  I am a native North Carolinian and have lived in Burlington, Cary, Greenville, Raleigh, Pittsboro, and Apex.  I enjoy reading the Bible, playing disc golf, Ultimate, hackeysacking, paintball, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends.
