After I graduated from Empire High School, I attended East Central University where I earned my B.S.Ed, with a major in Hyper and an endorsement in Mathematics. After getting my degree, I taught for three years at Empire High School, then spent eight years at Hooker High School. I have been with Antlers Public Schools since 2006, where I teach geometry and coach both middle and high school athletics.
I am married with three children. I spend what little leisure time I have boating, hunting, swimming and playing pool.
