I am a graduate of Murray State University. Go Racers!  I have  B.S. degrees in Journalism, History and Teacher Education. I am certified to teach 7-12 English, Reading , ACT Prep, U.S. History, World History, Government and Economics.


For most of my adult working life I've been a journalist and writer. I still write a syndicated general topics opinion column. During my midlife crisis 18 years ago I decided to return to college in order to become a teacher. I did and it has been one of the best decisions I've made to this point. 


I'm a native of West Tennessee who spent several of his teen years living in Detroit, Mich. When I was a teen my parents banished me to live with my grandmother in Paris, TN It was the best thing besides having me they ever did. I grew to love living there. I'm married to a newly retired special education teacher and we have four children, one on their own, two in college and who is a senior in high school. I have two  dogs- vanilla labs. My wife and children have 11 or 12 outdoor cats.
