Welcome to Economics! If most people were asked, they would probably define economics with those three famous words...supply and demand. But this is only part of the story. A workable definition might be: the science of scarcity and the choices (trade-offs) people must make to achieve their wants and needs. One of my primary goals is to expose my students not only to the academic aspects of economics, but also the practical applications. Economics is a skill-based course that, if studied, can aid in the success of other academic fields. I am in my seventeenth overall year of teaching, with certifications in Social Studies 7-12; AP Microeconomics; AP Macroeconomics; Librarian / Media Specialist.
I have taught nearly all subjects in Social Studies and find Economics to be my favorite. I received a Bachelor of Science in History from Mississippi College. I also received a Master of Education with an emphasis in History Education from Mississippi College. I have served as a football, baseball and golf coach previously.
On a personal note, I am married to the former Malinda Walker of Clinton. We have two daughters, Brogan and Ella. Apart from teaching, I enjoy fishing, playing the guitar and practicing martial arts. I hold a black belt in Lung Jow Pai Kung Fu Wushu (Northern Shaolin longfist system; Dragon Claw Style) under the direction of Grandmaster (Sifu) Trey Crake.
