I started teaching at Brown Middle School on Highway 58 in Hamilton County in 1970.  While there I taught sixth and eighth grade language arts, science,  and social studies. When my older son, Ramsey, started kindergarten in 1976, I transferred to McBrien Elementary in East Ridge to be with him.  In Tennessee I was certified first through eighth grades in all core subjects. While at McBrien I taught fourth, fifth, and sixth graders in all areas.  I was also the Director of the School Age Care Program at the school and one of the Diversity trainers for Hamilton County Schools.  After retiring from Hamilton County with thirty years of service in June of 2000, I started my Georgia teaching career in Dalton and later moved to Catoosa County Schools with the opening of Woodstation Elementary.  At Woodstation, I have taught fourth grade reading and social studies, third grade all core areas and gifted in the areas of reading and language arts in grades one through five.  Even though I have taught forty-six years, I still love working with students as much as the first day I entered the classroom.


At the present, I serve over seventy first-fifth grade students.  I am the father of two sons, Ramsey and Justin, and the grandfather (Papa) of four grandchildren, Dakota (16), Phoenix (13) Caleb (13) and Madison (9).  I live less than ten miles from where I grew up on land that had been owned by my family since 1850.  In fact my great- grandfather taught in a one room school house over one hundred years ago near the same property.
