I am happy to be part of the Yellow Jacket community! I am in my second year at BCHS and look forward to helping all students succeed. Before coming to Bessemer City High School I taught mathematics for 17 years at both the high school and college levels. My education includes a bachelor's degree in Management from North Carolina State University (Go Pack!). I have a masters degree in Mathematics from UNCC and a graduate certificate in Education Administration from Gardner Webb University. I also have a doctorate in Educational Leadership from UNCC. 

My wife and I live in Lowell, NC. I enjoy spending time with my family, following the Wolfpack, watching sports live and on TV, and doing yard work around the house.
