    Math I


    Believe it or not, I am a very eclectic individual.  By the time I was 15, I had worked and performed in rodeos, circuses and carnivals; Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream store manager; and a 10% owner of a fish store in Oklahoma City—just to name a few. Over the years, I lived in 14 different states and I am a disabled veteran from the US Air Force.

    I have degrees in Physical Education, Theatre, Speech, Language Arts, Middle Grades Education, Administration, and a PHD in Curriculum and Instruction.  Until I was married, I began my career in professional Theatre.  Then, I taught High School Theater and Middle School Language Arts for about 10 years.  In addition, I then taught Science/Math/Language Arts/History for a few years before settling on Math.

    I have two boys who both graduated from Northwest High School, Wake Forest University and North Carolina State.  They are both married and working.  My youngest son married his high school sweetheart. She and her younger brother were my students in 8th grade.

    I am currently married to a beautiful woman for over 15 years, who also teaches Math in the 8th grade at Kernodle Middle School.  We work together on the Math that we teach at our respective schools.
