Welcome to 4th & 5th Math & Social Studies!
 
     I am very happy to be teaching at East Side School and to be teaching my two favorite subjects, math and social studies.  This community is home to me.  As a child, I lived in the East Side Community and attended East Side School.   I also attended Cannon County High School.  After my graduation from high school in 1994, I attended Motlow State Community College.  I finished my Bachelor of Science Degree at Middle Tennessee State University where I graduated in December 2000. 
    
      I began my teaching career at Woodland School where I taught fifth grade for 4 ½ years.  I left Woodland School in 2005, and I spent the next 7 years teaching fourth grade at Short Mountain School.  This is my first year to teach at East Side School.   I am very excited to teach with my sister-in-law, Greta.  Since April 2012, I have been a Common Core Mathematics Coach for the Tennessee State Department of Education.  During the past summer, I trained teachers on the Common Core Math Standards. 
 
     I live with my wife, Amy, and two daughters, Lauren & Laila, in the Short Mountain/East Side Community.  Amy is a teacher here at East Side as Well.  She teaches 6th, 7th, & 8th grades science.  I enjoy spending time with my family and teaching.
