This is my fifth year teaching at Westside, and 15th overall. I have taught all grades and all levels of English, and am currently teaching English 4. Before teaching, I spent 8 years as a sports writer for various newspapers in North Carolina. I am a graduate of Western Carolina University and earned my teaching license through UNC-Greensboro. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time at home with my wife, Amanda, three daughters, Caroline (13), Katie (11) and Lindsay (9), our dog, Shirley, and cats Blackie, Mittens, Herb and Leo.
