    I graduated from The University of Missouri with a degree in Journalism.  This is my 14th year teaching 6th Grade Language Arts.  I love teaching 6th grade because it is such a big change for students as they move into middle school.  This year will be challenging and exciting!

    I live in Murphy with my wife. We have one daughter.  She is a sophomore at Baylor University.  My hobbies include reading comics, biking, hiking, and spending time with family.
