I have been teaching at Midland for 18 years. I live in Desha with my wife, Terry, and our Boston Terrier, Oreo. My oldest son, Stephen is married to one of my ex-fifth grade students, Jessica Hertz, now Jessica Norris, and my youngest son, David, is a Sophmore at Arkansas State Univeristy in Jonesboro. He is an acting/music major and hopes to move to New York some day and work on Broadway. I have always loved working with kids even working in the nursery at church as a teenager, and I still love each day I get to spend with my fifth and sixth graders. I am a big sports fan, especially the Razorbacks, and love to read. One of my goals is to see every major league ball park, and I am currently up to seven. Atlanta Braves next summer!
