I graduated from the University of West Georgia in 2013 with my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I graduated from Piedmont College with my Master’s Degree in 2015. I eventually plan on obtaining a specialist degree in the future.


I began my teaching career in second grade and absolutely loved it! I was fortunate enough to loop with that group up to third grade. I am very excited and grateful to have the opportunity to teach in fourth grade this year! I am currently in my fourth year of teaching and absolutely love every minute of it!


I grew up in a very close family with a younger brother. I have always been very active in sports and enjoy going to Falcons games and watching my Red Sox. I am a very passionate and fun person. I have always had a desire to help kids and watch them grow. This passion lead me to seek a profession in medicine, however I ultimately decided that the classroom was the place I could make the biggest difference and impact. I love my Lord and savior and am very blessed with the opportunity that I have. I also married my best friend, Chelsea, this past summer. My wife is also a teacher at Arbor Station Elementary.

My belief: Every kid has the potential to be someone great. Just think about the teachers that taught people like: Albert Einstein, Matt Ryan, George W. Bush, and even Mark Zuckerberg. We have the opportunity to teach the next great minds and that in itself is what excites me everyday!
