Experience
Prior to coming to DeSoto County last year, I spent five years teaching and coaching in Missouri.  I spent my first three years teaching PE, health, and weight training classes at Holcomb Jr./Sr. High School.  I was the head volleyball coach, head jr. high baseball coach, and assistant varsity baseball coach. 
My last two years in Missouri were spent at Portageville High School where I taught World History and Geography.  In addition to teaching, I was the asst. middle school football coach and Head Varsity baseball coach. 
My last three years were spent at Olive Branch Middle where I served as a history instructor and assistant football coach.  My first year at OBH has been a great experience.
