    Right is right even if no one is right. Wrong is wrong even if everyone is wrong.
    My Classroom Mission

    My classroom mission is to provide the opportunity for a top notch education in history by creating a safe learning environment, using effective strategies, and helping students to understand how our present is a product of our past.  I feel called to teach, and I want each of my students in each of my classes to become informed, active citizens of our community, state,  and nation.
    About Me
    I am a native of Iredell county and a 1979 graduate of South Iredell High School. I graduated from UNC-CH in 1983 with a BA in Education. I received a Master of Arts in Teaching from UNC-CH in 1984. After teaching and coaching at Vance Senior High in Henderson, NC for two years, I "retired" from teaching to attend Columbia International University in Columbia, SC. I received a Master of Arts in Christian Education in 1989. My wife and I moved to Statesville in August of 1989 and I began teaching and coaching at South at that time. We have been blessed with four children, ages 24, 22, 19, and 15. My wife stays busy as a teacher ,too, because we homeschool our children. Sports, music, and reading are my favorite hobbies. I have taught a variety of courses at South including: ELP, Civics, US History, World History, Honors World History, World Humanities, Western Civilization (which offered college credit through Wingate College), AP European History, AP World History, Bible History I, II, III, & IV, Criminal Justice, Psychology and Driver Education. I would have to say that my real passion is teaching Bible History & World History. Oh yes, there is just one more thing...
