WELCOME

Thank you for visiting my Online classroom! I am very excited to be with you all this year as your student's 5th grade Science and Social Studies teacher.

 

My Biography

I am a Polk County native and a graduate of Rockmart High School. From there I attended Georgia Highlands College before graduating from Western Governors University with a degree in Elementary Education. I have recently finished my Masters degree in Elementary Education with my STEM endorsement at the University of West Georgia. I will be starting my Educational Specialist at Valdosta state in January. 

This will be my 3rd year as a certified teacher. The past two years I have taught at W.C Abney Elementary in 3rd & 4th grades. Prior to that I worked as a Paraprofessional at Van Wert Elementary in Rockmart. 

My wife (Kaci, a Cherokee Alumni), and I live in Rockmart with our infant son, Ridge.

 

My Education Philosophy

My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and take risks.
