I am very excited about starting my 26th year of teaching as a member of Spartan Nation! I spent the first 23 years teaching at Warren Central High School where I graduated from in 1989. I am also a graduate of WKU (93') & I also received my Rank I through the National Board Certification in 2006.
I will be teaching the AP U.S. History Skinny classes this year in addition to Regular U.S. History. I look forward to serving the students at SWHS & working with the administration, staff & teachers! My passion is teaching history to others as I enjoy seeing students learn history through role-plays, debates, discussions, & analyzing primary sources. I enjoy role-playing different characters & having special guests bring history to life in the classroom! Nathaniel Bacon, Chief Pontiac, Alexander Hamilton,George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abe Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan, FDR, Richard Nixon, & Ronald Reagan have been known to visit our classroom.
My wife and I are blessed with two children (12-year-old Savannah & 6-year-old Keegan). They are starting new schools this year as Savannah will be attending SWMS & Keegan will be attending Rich Pond. My wife works in our school's cafeteria, & we are all excited about being part of the Spartan community. We are members of Living Hope Baptist Church. We are huge fans of WKU Basketball and Football. In my spare time I like playing golf, taking walks and being with my family. In the summer I enjoy teaching at WKU's Vampy program for gifted students as I teach the Presidential Politics Class.
Thank you for the privilege of allowing me to work with your child as I look forward to beginning our journey into examining the story of our nation's history!
I encourage all students, parents & guardians to join your child's classroom Remind.
