I begin my 28th year in education (6th year @ Peaster) with the start of the 2019-2020 school year. My previous experience includes stops in Abilene (Wylie), Azle, Paradise and Springtown. Most of my coaching experience is in football (offensive coordinator/running backs/defensive backs) and powerlifting, but I have, at one time or another, coached tennis, baseball, basketball, and track. With a primary interest in teaching social studies, I also have certifications and experience in PE and mathematics. From 2004-2014, I held administrative positions at Springtown Middle and High Schools, including 3 years as High School Principal. My wife, Jennifer (librarian at PHS), and I celebrated our 25th anniversary this summer. We have two sons, Books (21) and Steele (17).
