I am currently a 5th grade school teacher at South Dale Middle School. I teach math and science. This will begin my 8th year teaching and I have previously taught 2nd and 4th grades at Midland City Elementary School. I will teach math and science this year. You can visit YouTube for daily videos on math lessons by going typing SDMS 5th Grade Math in the search engine on YouTube. My most exciting aspects of teaching are: preparing our youth to become leaders of the world, guiding them in learning the truths of the unknown, and leading them toward their own aspirations of fulfilling the hopes, dreams, and goals which they have preset for themselves. I pray that each child walks away from this class knowing that if they believe in their goals and in themselves, then they can achieve what may even seem to be the impossible. I am also the sponsor of the BASIC (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) Club at South Dale and I encourage all who will to participate in this very active and positive environment of people which meet in the gym each Wednesday at 7:15 a.m. Along with BASIC, I sponsor a new club which is a spin-off of the 5th Grade Music Enrichment from past years, entitled SDMS Show Choir. This group will feature the greatest fine arts talents of South Dale! Finally, a few years back, we received a grant to start our own TV News Station at SDMS! I am the TV Director for SDNN (South Dale News Now) Channel 16. Check us out on YouTube under SDNN Ch. 16 and watch for a new broadcast to air each week! I thank God for all the accomplishments in my life and I strive to put him first in every decision I make both inside and outside the classroom. I am blessed with my wonderful wife and two children who are an intricate part of my life each day. I am very happy to say that I am thankful for God, my family, and this amazing job!!!!
