Welcome to Wood Middle School and thanks for stopping by to check out my page! I am happy that you chose to attend Wood Middle School and I am looking forward to getting to know each one of you during the year. Wood is a great school where teachers have your child’s best interest at heart—a campus that I have called home for 23 years.
I have a Bachelor of Science degree, I have been a science teacher for 25 years and am certified to teach biology, Earth science, life science, physical education. I also have my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and am certified to be a Principal EC-12. In the past, I have been a football, basketball and track coach for 10 years and really enjoyed working with the students in a different capacity outside of the school day. In fact, I have athletes that have gone on to play professional sports and they still keep in touch with me.
My father was in the military for 23 years, so I grew up as a military brat, moving to a new school every one to three years. I know what a challenge it can be for military-affiliated students to transition to a new school with new friends. I can tell you though, my best friends are the ones I made as a military brat in military American schools while living in Germany, Hawaii and almost every state in the U.S.
I have been married for 31 years, and my wife is a teacher as well. We have a son and daughter that are both in college. We have 2 dogs, a parrot, a gecko and I was a saltwater aquarium enthusiast. I love spending time with my family most of all. In fact, our extended family lives in the San Antonio area. I also like the Spurs, hunting, fishing, and I am a college football fanatic. My favorite games are Warhammer and Magic the Gathering.
