God has blessed with a wonderful family. My wife is Paula. My children are Blaine, Brianna and Spencer. Blaine and Brianna have already graduated from Hoxie, and Spencer is a ninth grader. I was graduated high school at Swifton in 1980.I turned 20 working at a trailer factory and then realized that I needed to further my education. I attended and graduated Arkansas State University in Jonesboro in 1987. I worked for nearly 15 years in radio, before, I believe, God led to become a teacher. I have had the honor and pleasure of educating your children for 13 years. I have taught all of the Social Studies Courses, but currently I am a teacher of World Geography, Economics, World History, and Pre A.P. World History. When I am not at school, I am deeply involved in my church, where I am a member of the Board of Trustees and the Sunday School Superintendent. I also will assist my wife, who is the Youth Group Leader. I am also an avid sports fan. My passions are the Hoxie Mustangs, St. Louis Cardinals, and Arkansas Razorbacks. This fall, I will be broadcasting the Mustang home football game on the internet. I believe that social studies and history are important for your children. I believe in the saying, " Those that do not know history are doomed to repeat it." Please feel free to contact me about your child. The best way to do this is usually by email, but you may also call anytime.
