This is my 9th year at Wylie High as an English instructor and soccer coach. This is my 20th year teaching. I have taught English I and mostly English II for 6 years, The last two years I have enjoyed my responsibilities as an English IV instructor. I am also the head coach for the boys' soccer program as I am responsible for the Varsity and JV teams. This is my 6th year in boys soccer with the previous three years prior on the girls' side.
I currently reside in Wylie with my lovely wife (Nan) of 24 years and my two beautiful girls (Madison-13 and Avery-10). They attend McMillan Junior High (Madison) and Smith Elementary (Avery). Madison is involved in choir while Avery is involved in club soccer with the Solar Soccer Club.
We also attend First Baptist Church in Wylie where we have been members for over 13 years.
This is my 20th year in teaching. I used to work in the retail business/management world before I started my teaching career in the Garland ISD at O'Banion Middle School in 2000. I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English there for 11 years before joining Wylie ISD and Wylie High 9 years ago. I have coached club soccer for years with FC Dallas, Spurs, and Longhorns before joining Wylie High as an English teacher and soccer coach.
I look forward to serving this year in our senior English classes and hope to make this year a meaningful, memorable, and rewarding one for all.
