Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to fourth grade! I’m so excited about this new school year! Let me take a moment to introduce myself. I was born and raised in Hendersonville, NC, and graduated from UNC-Asheville with a degree in Economics. I spent the first 12 years of my professional career as a banker in several towns in NC. I received my Elementary teaching license through Greensboro College in 2008. This will be my 13th year here at A.O. Our family lives in Elon. My wife and I have two wonderful daughters - Leah (14) and Lauren (18). Both of our girls came through AO. Leah will begin her freshman year at Western Alamance high school this fall while Lauren will begin her freshman year at Wingate University majoring in Biology. She will also be playing basketball on the Lady Bulldogs basketball team, so you might be seeing a bit of Wingate gear in our classroom :) We also have two miniature dachshunds named Winnie and Willow. Winnie is a black and brown mini and Willow is a blonde long-hair mini. They are a mess!!! We also have a very temperamental hedgehog named Squirt. I'm really looking forward to a wonderful year!
