I grew up for most of my childhood close to Salem, Arkansas, and I am a 2008 graduate of SHS. I then spent my college years at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. I graduated with a B.A. in Mid-level Education in 2013 with a focus in Math and Science. I also have a minor in Youth and Family ministry.
I am currently the 6th Grade Math teacher here at Valley Springs. I started my career as a teacher here at Valley Springs, and this is my fifth year with the district. I'm very blessed and thankful to work with such wonderful faculty/staff and students!
I have several interests and activites that I love to do when I am not teaching. I help work with the youth group at a local congregation, and that has been such a blessing to my life. I love spending time with my friends and church family. I also have a wonderful wife, Vanessa, who has been such an encouragement to me. We got married in November 2014 and I'm very thankful to have her in my life. I also really enjoy anything and everything outdoors! I especially love to run 5k's, swim, hike, and hunt. I enjoy playing ping pong, going to the movies, and reading. I am also a big fan of 3D archery and anything archery related in general. At some point I would like to learn to fluently speak another language and to play the guitar. I believe we should never stop learning!
