Assistant Principal

I am starting my twenty-sixth year of education, with nine of those years here in Hamilton County Schools. This is my second year as an assistant principal at East Brainerd Elementary. My work experience in education ranges from middle and high school math & science, working as an instructional math coach, to administration. 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from Mars Hill College in North Carolina. I have earned a Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Carson-Newman University, and I am currently working on a doctoral degree in Leadership at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.

I am a 2016 graduate of the Public Education Foundation's Leadership Fellows, and a current member of the eighth cohort of the Principal Leadership Academy.  

I am married to Cheryl, a high school math teacher and have five children. Zack my oldest is a captain in the Air Force and a B2 Bomber Pilot. My son, Luke, is a music teacher in Nashville, and also a talented musician. I have three daughters, Emma, a graduate of UTK, working as a nurse, Rachel, a senior in education at UTK, and Kate who is heading to UTK with the dream of becoming a medical doctor. As you can tell, education is very important to my family and me. 

I am the primary contact for grades 3rd - 5th. Please feel free to contact me with your questions and concerns. 

Thank you for allowing me to serve you and your children at EBES!
