I have three overall goals for my students this year: to
become better readers, to become better writers, and to become
better speakers. Although I don't expect from my students (or
myself) a mastery of the English language, I do expect them to
challenge and stretch their understanding of what it means to be
fluent in a language. Fluency in language comes from practice in
reading, writing, and speaking the language. Each of these three
practices will be employed in my class daily.
I have been teaching for
17 years, in public and private schools and in Mobile, Alabama and
Auburn, Alabama. I have taught Language Arts, Speech, Drama,
Physical Education, and History. I am certified in Secondary
Language Arts, speech, and drama.
My wife Heather
and I were married in Auburn and both graduated from Auburn
University. We have an 8th grade daughter named Ambar and a baby daughter
named Madison. We also have 2 dogs that
I would be more than happy to get rid of. Make me an offer!
