• I began Teaching at Blue Ridge Middle school in 2006. I spent the previous 19 years teaching Industrial Arts and Technology Education in Berkeley County, West Virginia, at Musselman Middle School.


    I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Arts Education from Trenton State College and a Master of Arts Degree in Communication Studies from West Virginia University. I have also spent the last 39 years building stringed musical instruments in my spare time.


    I believe the greatest tool a teacher can give a student is to teach them how to teach themselves.
