This is my third year at West Texas High School. I will be teaching US History.
I starting teaching in 1995 at Travis Middle School in Amarillo, Texas. I taught for eight and a half years at Travis. I taught 8th grade US History, 7th grade Texas History, and BEST MEN. I was a tutor in the GEARUP Program in Amarillo for almost six years.
I have been married since 1995. My wife and I have two sons and one daughter. My sons attend Bushland High School. Hunter is a senior this year and Colby is a sophomore. Haley started attending West Texas Middle School last year. She will be returning this year as a 7th grader. We have four pets. We have three dogs and a cat. Sophie is our St. Bernard, Bevo is our English Bull Dog, and Gus is a mut that showed up on our porch and would not leave. Josh is the name of our cat.
A new hobby I picked up last year was being resposible for the concession stand for West Texas High School’s athletic events. I enjoy the challenge of getting the concession stand ready and the pleasure of working with other teachers, parents, and students.
