About Me

I would like to welcome all my students and their families to our 6th Grade World History class! I have a passion for world geography and have traveled much of my life before settling down here in Clarksville. This is my seventh year at West Creek Middle School. My wonderful wife and I met in Germany and we have been married for 25 years. Our two daughters attended school here in Clarksville. Like many people in this community, I spent twenty years in the Army. I have found serving my country as both a military officer and teacher equally rewarding. I completed my Bachelors of Science degree at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and a Master’s in Education degree through Trevecca Nazarene University here in Nashville. I am looking forward to working with each and every one of you this year and am proud to be a part of the Coyote team!
