    8th Grade Social Studies

    Social Studies teacher starting his 28th year teaching and 19th year at NW! 

    Loves all the stories from history!

     Welcome to 8th grade Social Studies! I look forward to sharing what I consider to be the most interesting subject in 8th grade - North Carolina and United States History!


    I attended Wofford College for two years before transferring to and graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in Political Science. I earned my teaching licensure from Greensboro College and my masters in middle grades education from Gardner-Webb University. Yeah...I've experienced a lot of college! 

    My family includes my wife of 30 years, Kelley, and our daughter, Meredith, a social studies teacher next door at NW High. We have a three year-old pug named Gunther. 

    My interests include traveling to historic places, learning new ways to grill food, and college sports.
