My family and I live in Nags Head, where we've been for twenty-one years.  Originally from Evanston, Illinois, I attended college at The College of Wooster in Ohio, graduating with a degree in Psychology and Education.  I am a lifelong learner and enjoy being a student. I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in 1997, my National Boards in 2000 (renewed in 2010) and my Masters of School Administration in 2013.  

I have twenty-four years of classroom teaching experience, but spent the last couple of years at FFHS and MMS as administrative intern and assistant principal where I had the opportunity to learn from the best, be an active participant in PLCs, and work first hand with students and teachers. My philosophy  is pretty simple:  

I believe in doing what's best for our students,  learning from mistakes and leading by example.  
















Though born and raised in Virginia, I reside with my wife and two children in Nags Head. I graduated from Longwood University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. After graduation, I had the opportunity to study at both UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC-W, but it was the time spent teaching Science to K-12 students in Cuidada Quesada, Costa Rica that developed my desire and conviction to become a teacher. I was first hired by Dare County Schools to teach and coach at Manteo Middle and High. In 2016 I earned my Masters in School Administration. The following year, I served as an Administrative Intern at Manteo Elementary where I gained valuable experience with the K-5 teacher and learner.  I believe these opportunities have given me a greater understanding for the Middle School student, parent and teacher.  Middle School is my favorite place to be and I am so thankful to be here with you all!
