Passion Description:

I am a 1972 graduate of the University of Richmond.  I earned a BA with a concentration in English education and history, and taught for five years in the Henrico County (VA) School system before leaving to pursue a career in foodservice.  Throughout the next 23 years, I continued “teaching,” developing and delivering training programs in fine dining restaurants, fast food, wholesale distribution, and cafeterias. In 2000 my wife Sharon, a life-long educator, and I made the prayerful decision to return to teaching in Hall County, Georgia, as John Keats said, “…to write (my) name in water.” I earned a Masters in English Education from North Georgia College and State University in 2005. I have taught ninth grade (regular and Honors), American Literature (regular and Honors), British Literature (regular and Honors) and Advanced Placement Literature and Composition; I was the English Department Chair, National Honor Society school level advisor and Georgia Association of National Honor Societies (GANHS) state board advisor, and read AP Lit and Comp exams for six years. I hold Gifted Certification, Advanced Placement Literature and Composition and International Baccalaureate Language A and Theory of Knowledge certification, and hold a current Nevada State Teaching Certificate. I was selected Teacher of the Year by my peers, STAR Teacher by Alison Ryan, Walmart Teacher of the Year by Richard Darracott, a colleague, and nominated to Who’s Who Among American Teachers by a student. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Sharon, for 44 years, attend Calvary Chapel Spring Valley with my daughter and son-in-law Heather and Dean Harris, Men’s Bible Study on Wednesday mornings with my “brothers,” and have a heart for Christ and for teaching.
