Howdy! This is my ninth year teaching at Blakemore Middle School during which I have taught 6th grade Math and Social Studies, 6th and 7th grade Science and this is my third year teaching 8th grade Math. I graduated from Austin College (Sherman, Tx) in 1997 with a B.A. Philosophy. I had many different jobs prior to completing the PACE program through WTA&M in 2010 including working for the Amarillo Globe-News, working as a roughneck on an oil rig in Odessa, Tx and as a caseworker at BR prior to teaching. I've been married for 13 years and have two sons and a daughter aged 9, 6 1/2, and 3 1/2, respectively. I enjoy reading, fishing, traveling and most outdoor activities. I'm excited for a great 2018-19 school year!
