Tell us about your family.
I am married to Monica, who is a Kindergarten teacher here at SRCS.  We have been married for 22 years and have two kids -- Nathan, who is a senior, and Ainsley, who is an 8th grader, both at SRCS.
Who was an influential teacher for you, and why?
Mr. Bass was my 4th grade teacher.  He was my first male teacher, and that, in and of itself, was a needed thing.  The validation that came from his presence in my life and interaction with me was invaluable.
What are your interests outside of work?
I enjoy watching college/pro football and military history programs, exercising, and spending time with my family.
What is a favorite SRCS memory?
One of my favorite SRCS memories comes from January 4, 2000, when the boys basketball team defeated the Crystal River varsity team.  It was a good night.  Later that night, Florida State won the college football national championship, and two days later my son was born.  It was a nice few days for me.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
The best part about my job is seeing my students day after day - getting to know them and teaching them about the Bible, history, math, and reading.  I love developing a relationship with these students and sharing with them the love of the Father.
