About Me

I am originally from Liverpool, England. I served in the Royal Navy for four years before emigrating to this great country. I served in the US army for 23 years serving in numerous deployments. I retired from Ft. Campbell in 2005. I completed my Bachelors degree at Austin Peay University and my Masters at Liberty University. I have been serving happily here as a member of the 'Creek family' since 2009. I am grateful to be a part of this school and family team to educate your child in the area of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM). I am also a representative for a Christian based organization called the Fellowship of Christian Athletes FCA, and a Robotics coach for the First Lego League (FLL).


8th grade are flying into aeronautics, (ugh! the pun)learning the basics of Bernoulli's principles as applied to flight. Students will create a paper airplane that will be tested for distance and accuracy, no planes are to be hand thrown! All planes will be launched from a customized launcher (built by ours truly)this eliminates the variable of throwing abilities each student has.

6th Grade are working on a nautical theme; building a foil boat that will be tested for buoyancy and the ability to hold as many dice as possible, yes it is a dicey caper but! Upon understanding the basics of boat building draft, buoyancy, ballast etc,etc it promises to be a foil proof class.
