Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts in Architecture, University of Tennessee Master's Degree in Education, University of Alabama at Birmingham
This is my tenth year of teaching 9th Grade English (my sixth at Mountain Brook Junior High), after a thirty-year career in design and construction.
I grew up in Birmingham and received my degree in architecture from the University of Tennessee, where I met my wife Pam. We have four grown children, who all graduated from Mountain Brook Schools, and five grandchildren. I returned to school at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and received my Master's in Education in English Language Arts in 2011. Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach where I swim, play tennis, read, and eat great seafood.
I look forward to helping every student as we work together to achieve an effective, challenging, and engaging education in 9th Grade English this year.
