Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited about my fourth year at Ball's Bluff Elementary School. I am entering my fourteenth year of teaching and my thirteenth year in fourth grade in Loudoun County, and I myself graduated from Loudoun County Public Schools. I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Shepherd University, and my master's degree in education leadership through George Mason. I enjoy teaching fourth grade because I find that most students this age are eager to learn and have an authentic enthusiasm for knowledge. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my wife and our son Carson, as well as our dog Murphy. Carson will be a big brother before we know it as we are expecting another boy, Taylor very soon. We love going on walks, visiting playgrounds, and watching movies together. I love soccer, especially English soccer, my favorite team is Arsenal. I still enjoy playing in an adult soccer league on the weekends. Besides soccer, my family and I like watching football with my team being the Minnesotta Vikings and my wife's team is the Philadelphia Eagles. I am really looking forward to the school year and having a chance to work with the wonderful fourth grade students here at Ball's Bluff Elementary.
