    I am blessed to teach at the absolute BEST elementary school anywhere!  5th grade is a year full of challenges, growth, and celebrations. We are learning to take risks, stretch ourselves, and work to become excellent in all we do. My goal is to provide a fun atmosphere where taking risks, working hard, and being a part of something bigger are encouraged and fostered. 
    In order to ensure your child’s success, students are expected to follow the 3 R’s (R³).
              1.) Be Respectful of yourself, others, our school, and our tools;
              2.) Be Responsible for your choices, your work, and your things; and
              3.) Be Ready to learn.
    I've taught for a total of 24 years. My time has been spent teaching a variety of grade levels and subjects. Of those, eight years have been at the 5th-grade level, including three of which were teaching 5th grade GT math. I graduated from Austin College with a BA in Business Administration and my Masters in Education. While studying at Austin College I met my wife, Laurie. We’ve been married for 22 years. God blessed us with two incredible kids, Zachary and Lani Grace. As a family, we love God, enjoy Ranger games, playing games, and spending time on the beach or at Beavers Bend with friends.
    I have been blessed to work with and learn from some of the absolute best educators anywhere. In 1999 I was honored to receive the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year award while teaching at Washington Elementary School in Sherman. I love my job and work hard to ensure each child I work with enjoys the time they spend in my classroom and is as successful as they possibly can be.
