It is an awesome opportunity to be teaching here at East Bernstadt Middle School for the last eighteen years. It is my goal to do my best to guide each student to be the best they can be academically. I will try my hardest to help them achieve their goals. I encourage each student to reach the great potential they have. My students deserve the best and I want help them be successful. I attended college at Union College and received my teaching degree in 1996. I then went to University of the Cumberlands and achieved my masters degree. I served as the Family Resource Director at Cold Hill and Keavy Elementary Schools from 1998 through 2001. In 2001, I accepted a position as a teacher at the Bentley School in Laurel County. In 2002 I started teaching the middle school reading class at East Bernstadt Middle School. I'm also a bus driver for East Bernstadt Schools. I have been married for twenty nine years to my wonderful wife Cindy. We are blessed with three children- Blaine, Branson, and Bailee.
