    This is my 24th year teaching at Elon Elementary.  Every year has been teaching either Kindergarten or First Grade.  I have a wonderful wife and 4 fantastic boys, 2 of which attend here at Elon.  I love to read to kids and for my own pleasure.  I love to visit the beach and the mountains.  I have a large extended family, most of which live locally, but some reaching as far out as South America and Australia.  I love to eat and cook and I spend most of my spare time with my family or my church.
     
    We are excited to be a Global School here at Elon.  Our region for First Grade is Asia. 
     
    Come say "Hello" at the Meet the Teacher Thursday, August 23, 2018 anywhere between 3-5:00 pm.  You can find me here, and Ms. Kirby, our Instructional Assistant, will be making an appearance too while visiting between the classes she is helping with this year.
