601-605-4171Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies. I am sincerely looking forward to a great year teaching and getting to know your children. I'm entering my 20th year as a middle grades teacher; for 12 of those years, I taught 8th grade Georgia and American History. In June 2011, I retired from the Georgia Teacher's Retirement System where I was a teacher, coach and athletic director. Prior to teaching, I spent over 20 years in the U.S. Army. I am married with 3 children and 9 grandchildren. My wife, Kate, is a professor at UMMC School of Nursing. For homework info, please check my homework blog. Also, the best way to contact me is via e-mail. As I am from South Louisiana I'll leave you with this final thought...GEAUX TIGERS!
