    I was born and raised in Iredell county. I graduated from Appalachian State University. This is my second year at Troutman Middle School, after taking over the 7th grade science position, in January of 2018. During my free time I enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, coaching, spending time with my family, and watching the Green Bay Packers. This will also be my first year as head wrestling coach at TMS. I am looking forward to teaching your child about the wonderful world of science. Go Bobcats!
