I am a teacher.  It is who I am... It is more than what I do.  Over the years I have found that the one purpose for which I have been put on this earth is to teach others.  I have taught elementary, middle and high school.  I have been a disciplinarian, an assistant principal and a principal.  Over the years, I have taught dog training, teacher training, baseball training, hunter education training, potty training and just about every other form of formal instruction you can guess.  Throughout my life, I have been afforded a great many opportunities for learning by some incredibly caring folks.  My Mom and Dad placed a premium on education and insisted that my brothers and sisters do the same. My fairy god mother, Mrs. Janet Brown, financed my college education, allowing me to attain my college diploma, when otherwise impossible.  Education is more than my job... it is my giveback for all the generosity that I have experienced.  It is my mission to endow my students with some of that same, residual, positivness.  Thanks for sharing your young person with me.  I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in any way that I can.  Please contact me with any questions you may have.
