Teacher in North Carolina

Visit my website

I'm a high school social studies teacher in my second year at Jesse Carson High School (Go Cougars). I grew up in China Grove, North Carolina where I graduated from South Rowan High. I earned a Bachelor's degree in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2006 and a Master's degree in Teaching in 2007. At Carolina I met my wonderful wife who is a Social Worker in Salisbury.

I spent three years teaching social studies in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District before moving to Rowan County six years ago. My wife, son Dudley, and I - and our beagle - live in Granite Quarry, NC.

I'm an avid Tar Heel sports fan - yes, I was in Chapel Hill for two Men's Basketball National Championships. I also love to read and watch great movies.
