Hello all and welcome to my home page!
I am excited to be joining the staff at Fort Loudoun Middle School and to get to know each and every one of you this year! I love teaching history and have a passion for mentoring students and pushing them to reach their full potential. I love spending time with my family, traveling, and playing games. My wife, Hannah, and I have two children--Caleb, who is almost 2 years old and full of energy, and Zoe, who was just born on July 12 this summer and is so cute and cuddly.
This will be my 7th year teaching. Previously I taught in Knox County for two years (Hardin Valley Middle and South Doyle High), and I spent 4 years teaching in South Korea at International Christian School-Pyeongtaek.
I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies this year. In 7th grade we will be covering world history during the time of the Middle Ages, from the Fall of the Roman Empire until the Early Modern Period. In 8th grade we will be covering early American history, from colonization in the New World to the Reconstruction following the Civil War.
Here's to a fun and exciting year!
HERE ARE SOME OF THE PLACES I'VE BEEN!
