I am very excited about beginning my fourth year as the Curriculum Coordinator at Whitaker. I began my teaching career in Winston-Salem in 1972 teaching first and second grade at Forest Park Elementary School. I had the distinction of being the first male primary teacher in the district. During the next 25 years, I taught first, second, and third grades at a variety of other schools in the county. For the past 13 years I have been a Curriculum Coordinator. Prior to coming to Whitaker, I was a teacher and Curriculum Coordinator at Piney Grove Elementary in Kernersville.
Two of the highlights of my career are being named the 1992 Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Teacher of the Year and receiving the 1989 Governor's Award for Excellence in Teaching Social Studies.
I am married and the father of two children. My wife works for BB&T. My daughter and her husband live in Nashville, Tennessee. My daughter was a teacher in Nashville but is now a stay-at-home mom with my four year old granddaughter and my one year old grandson. My son and his wife live in Raleigh with my one and half year old grandson. He is a physical education specialist in the Wake County Schools and also serves as the state director of men's gymnastics.
