If you ended up here, you must want to know something about me. Here are a few of the basics.
I grew up on a horse farm in Micanopy, Florida. That's about fifteen miles south of the University of Florida, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in English. I've taught middle school language arts and reading for the last twenty-eight years, and have taught in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. I moved to Andover from Dallas, Texas over the summer and look forward to a great year working with my new students and their families.
I enjoy hiking, paddle-boarding, photography, and occasionally a round of golf, but if you see me on the golf course, you might want to keep your eyes wide open and your ears alert for a piercing "Fore!" I can hit a wild shot with no prior warning and from any position on the course.
My wife and I are the proud parents of two English bulldogs. Pebbles and Bam Bam have certainly added adventure to our household and keep us laughing when they aren't barking at the neighbors.
That's pretty much it for me. If you think you want to know more...you are welcome to ask.
