  • Welcome to Pine Tree Middle School! Go Pirates!

    I started my teaching career at Airline High School in Bossier City, LA.  I was there for 5 years as a math and social studies teacher, soccer coach and mock trial coach.  I met my wife, Stacie, while there. I am now married to my wonderful wife Stacie. We have 3 children and 1 little chihuahua. In the fall of 2006 we moved to the Dallas area where I taught social studies at the Harmony Science Academy before moving on to Allen ISD.  After Allen, I had a brief stint as an instructional supervisor for Dallas ISD.  I then served 2 years as assistant principal of Griffin Middle School in The Colony and 1 year as assistant principal of Collins Intermediate in Corsicana.  In the fall of 2015 I was named the prinicipal of Drane Intermediate in Corsicana.  I am now thrilled to be a Pine Tree Pirate.

  • I am so excited to be joining the team of educators at Pine Tree Middle School. I am beginning my 25th year in education.  I taught for 17 years before leaving the classroom and then took the leap of faith in an administrative role.  I began my career teaching Spanish and English at Ore City High School where I graduated Salutatorian.  I, then, transferred to Sabine Middle School as an 8th grade English teacher.  From there, I finished strong in the classroom at Hallsville Jr. High, teaching Spanish, English and Speech.  I spent 8 years in an administrative role at New Diana ISD, first as an instructional facilitator at the Intermediate School, and then moving to the High School and Middle School as Assistant Principal. Through all these venues, I have had the privilege of gaining knowledge in various experiences. 

    I knew from my 6th grade year in school that I wanted to be a teacher.  I never deviated from the plan, nor questioned my intents.  My work experience has been one I would rather think of as not work.  I go to a place daily where I have fun and do my best to impact lives in whatever way I can.  For this, I am truly blessed.
