Subjects Taught
4th Grade


I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University.

I have a Masters Degree in Education from Indiana Weslyan University.


I have been in education since 2001.  Prior to coming to Chattanooga I taught for 10 years in Indiana in all grades and subjects from 1-5 and taught literacy for 2 years in grades 6-8.  After moving to Chattanooga I joined the Hamilton County Education team at Hardy Elementary where I taught 5th grade for 4 years and 3rd grade for 1.  I really look forward to teaching this year in our newly renovated school!


I have been married for 21 years to my beautiful wife Jennifer.  We have 2 sons, Caleb 12, and Logan 8. Logan attends Westview Elementary and is in  3rd grade. Caleb is starting his first year of middle school at East Hamilton Elementary.  When I am not teaching I enjoy hiking with them all and visiting the many local historic sites of Civil War events in the area.
