This is my third year as a teacher and coach at Columbus Junior High School. I teach Texas History, and as a proud Texan, I feel blessed to be allowed to come to work every day and spend most of my time talking about the greatness of the Lone Star State. I strive as a teacher not only to teach my students about the history of Texas, but also to show them how that history, our government and our economy affect our lives today as citizens of Texas. I also coach football at CJHS, and girls soccer for the high school. I received my B.A. from Texas A&M University and a J.D. from St. Mary's University. My wife, Jami, and I are both teachers who spend whatever free time we have with our two children.
