21 years as a teacher in the public school system. Most of my career has been at grade five, but I work with grades four through eight on writing. I also worked with the tenth grade students back in the days of the Alabama Direct Assessment of Writing. I am certified in elementary k-6 and secondary social science.
My style is just being positive to help students BELIEVE that they can achieve success. They have too many people telling them they can't do things!
I have a book published on football, as well as developed a workbook for all of our students to utilize for the writing process.
Yet to be added
I have three children: Cory, who teaches across the hall from me, Blake, and Haley, who are presently in college. I also have two awesome grandchildren, Abigail and Isaac. I have been married to my wife Gena for 28 years.
