I graduated from Douglas High School in 1988. I accepted a scholarship from Snead State Community College. When I graduated I went on to finish my BS in English and Social Studies Education degree at Athens State University in 1994. I finished my Masters last spring at Jacksonville State University.  



I have been teaching for almost 20 years and I'm not looking to retire anytime soon. I enjoy teaching . I have taught grades 7-12 both English and history. I have been head of an English department twice at different schools. I have also taught AP 11 and 12. I am also a high school football coach. I've been coaching over twenty years and have been a defensive coordinator for 15 years.


I am 47 years old and a widower. I have three children: Jerika who is 27, Ronny who is 26, and Brady who is 25. I have six grandchildren, 5 girls and 1 boy. I'm from North East Alabama around the Guntersville area. I am proud to be a teacher and coach here in the Lanett City School System.
