Bio

This will be my 20th year of teaching, all but my first year have been in Douglas County.  I have been at Mason Creek since opening, and every year gets better and better! I am excited about this new year and look forward to the challenges and fun that will come in teaching art.

For the past several years I have been teaching gifted art clusters and the results are fantastic! The students are presented with a general ART concept and encouraged to problem solve and expand into a project that may take several weeks to complete. The prerequisite to be served in at least one gifted class.

I had a fun summer full of changes! I was married and moved back to my hometown Brremen. My cool beautiful wife Julie, is a UGA fan and a teacher at Jones ELementary. I have a son named McLain that goes to the Bremen Academy. He is playing football this year and it keeps us busy. When he is not at practice we are playing it in the backyard.  He is going to wrestle next, so that means injuries are coming... for me.

I am a potter and I do a few local fine arts shows yearly as well as EMPTY BOWLS in Carroll County every year.
