I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from the University of Central Oklahoma and my Master's Degree in Special Education from Wilmington University in Delaware. I am originally from Oklahoma, but over the past 14 years I have lived in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and now New Jersey, where my family and I have lived since 2015. In Washington, DC, I worked at a lobbying organization and a US government contractor. Since becoming a career switcher, I have had the privilege of teaching both in urban and suburban environments. I enjoy spending time with my wife and toddler daughter, exploring NJ state parks, and reading. This is my first year at West Deptford Middle School, and I am thrilled to be a part of this community. Go Eagles!
