Let me help you get to know me better. I am a third generation educator. My father's mother and both of my parents have been educators while my mother's mother worked in a school cafeteria. On my mother's side of the family when we have our family reunion out of the 100 or so family members there about 75% of us are educators or are retired educators. We have all positions covered ranging from teacher aides to superintendants. So I have heard or seen about every aspect of education there is over the years.
While in college at Sam Houston State University I taught health at a private school in Conroe and taught CPR to Prison Guards. I substitute taught from 1986-1991 and began teaching full-time in October of 1991. After that first year of teaching Option III for Conroe I.S.D. I began to teach for Hempstead I.S.D. While at Hempstead High School I taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 1 (the two year course), Informal Geometry, TAAS Math and Yearbook . In 1998 I began teaching for Willis I.S.D. While I have been at Willis High School I have taught Algebra 1, Speech, Keyboarding, Geometry, Algebra 2, Math Models, and AQR. During the 2010-11 school year I taught BCIS (Business Computer Information Systems). In the 2011-12 school year the course was changed to BIM (Business Information Management). During the 2016-17 school year I began teaching Advanced Quantitative Reasoning (AQR) full-time.
From 2002-2005 & 2006-2009 I was the Math Department Chair at WHS . I have been the National Honor Society Sponsor at WHS since 2001 and I was the President of the Willis ISD chapter of The Association of Texas Educators from 1999 to 2010.
I married my 6th grade sweetheart in 1986. Having not seen each other since we both graduated from Conroe High in 1981 we got back together after she returned home from graduating with her Liberal Arts degree from Stephen F. Austin.
In 1999 we had our miracle child. He is truly a gift from God . God had to show us that he was the one in control of things. This was a hard lesson to learn. Since we had tried everything we could afford to try. We are now glad that we were taught this lesson.
I have taught Sunday School at the Conroe Church of Christ from the time I was in the 5th grade until 2013. I was a JOY Bus Captain for 10 years. I have been going to church camps as a counselor, head dishwasher or worked in the concession stand since 1981. I have been a Deacon at the Conroe C of C since 2006. I was the assistant coach for my son's soccer team from 2005-08.
In 1998 I was selected as an Outstanding Young American and in 2005 & 2006 I was selected for Who's Who Among American Teachers by two of my students.
