It's a Great Day to be a Titan and Welcome to the Jungle. I'm excited to be teaching this year at Madison Central and Ridgeland High School, getting to know you and explore the wonder that is the world of mathematics. Whether it's preparing for the AP Calculus Test, helping you get that College Algebra credit, or boosting your score on the ACT, we're going to try to have some fun while we do it. Though the mask might be hiding it, bring a smile on your face and let's do this.
I have been teaching in the Madison County School District for the past 15 years. While here, I have taught a variety of subjects: Pre-Algebra, Survey of Advanced Mathematical Topics, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Advanced Algebra, Trigonometry, PreCalculus, ACT Prep, PSAT Prep, AP Calculus AB, and AP Calculus BC. I have been a sponsor of Mu Alpha Theta and Academic Competition, as well as participated as the emcee for Mock Homecoming, Powderpuff Football, and Madison County Junior Miss. In addition, I taught Summer School for four years and helped unpack and develop a pacing guide for the new Common Core Standards in Geometry for the district.
I also am an adjunct professor at Holmes Community College in Ridgeland. My family and I attend Broadmoor Baptist Church. My wife, Chelcie, is a Labor & Delivery nurse at UMC. Mackenzie, my oldest daughter passed away in January of 2017. My six year daughter, Ainsleigh, is in first grade at Madison Avenue, our two year old, Charlie Grace, keeps us on our toes, and we will be welcoming another little girl to our family in October. I am excited for the upcoming school year and the opportunities and challenges it will bring. Let's Make it a Great One!
