Hello! Welcome to my world! The 2018-19 school year marks my 28th in the field of education. The last fourteen years you could find me "across the highway" at Kenwood High School. Before that I taught high school in Kentucky for three years. Prior to entering the realm of secondary education I taught and coached at the collegiate level at Oakland City University in Oakland City, Indiana and the University of Minnesota-Morris in Morris, Minnesota. In addition to holding a teaching license, I am a licensed practicing attorney in Clarksville, and I maintain a private investigators license. Education is my first career choice and my love. It is an amazing feeling to work with students and watch them grow on a daily basis. One of the most enjoyable feelings is when that student who thought some concept or task was not ascertainable, suddenly, or not so suddenly, "gets it". That look on their face, the change in their body language, and the confidence gains... it's amazing!

  • Welcome students and parents to West Creek High School and my classroom. I have high expectations for everyone and will push everyone to reach their potential...and beyond. I won't promise that it will be easy... but I will do my best to help you (your child) be successful. 
  • Calculators...Students will need to have access to a TI 84 (or later) graphing calculator. We have classroom sets that they can use while in class. I will also be showing the students how to download a version of the TI-84 Plus calculator on their laptops.  You may elect to purchase your own calculator for use so they have access to one for homework; however, that is not a requirement.
  • Let's talk about homework...We will have homework almost daily because math is a subject that must be practiced in order to be successful; therefore, homework grades are based on completion of the practice problems provided that the student shows all work necessary as covered in class. If your student has a zero for an assignment that means he/she just didn't even attempt it. 
  • Students need to be on time with appropriate materials, such as assignments, pencil, paper...
  • Students are expected to be seated when the bell rings to avoid being considered tardy
  • Students are expected to complete daily practice work on time, as it is imperative to know and understand the material because math builds upon itself daily.
  • Students are expected to respect others and their property, including teacher, classmates and guests.
  • Students are responsible for getting and completing all assignments they missed whenever they are absent no matter what the reason.
