    Hello junior parents and welcome to 11th Grade English! I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Secondary Education and a Masters in the Art of Teaching. GO DUKES! Prior to teaching here at Briar Woods, I taught for three years at Loudoun Valley High School. This is my fourth year teaching at Briar Woods and I couldn't be happier to be back teaching at my alma mater! I'm extremely involved at Briar Woods through coaching and club sponsorships. I'm the Varsity Golf Coach, Junior Class Sponsor, Literary Magazine Sponsor (The Talon), and the Freshman Girls Basketball coach.  I look forward to an exciting 2021-2022 school year!


    Outside of school I try to stay as unencumbered as possible. I enjoy staying very active through golf, running, hiking, and exercising my 18 month old Siberian Husky, Scout who is full of energy and keeps my wife and I on our toes! While I am a huge homebody, I do enjoy visiting my parents, who are retired down in Sunset Beach, NC and my in-laws who have a lake house in Ossipee, NH.
