About me...

  I am originally from Owensboro, Kentucky.  I moved to the area when I attended Kentucky Christian University.  That's where I met my incredible wife who is from Greenup County.  Later, I attended Morehead State University and received my master's degree.
  I've taught at Wurtland Middle School for twenty-five years. My goal is to help every student be as successful as they can be in my class and in life.  Go Wildcats!!
