5th Grade Math



This is beginning my 12th Year as a teacher in the Dale County School System. I love teaching and am blessed by God to have the gift to work with students while encouraging them to be better people and to know that they can make it through the worst times. I am very blessed to be a teacher to teach students and to influence them through inspiration of hope, faith, and belief to achieve the greatest things in life.  I have a wonderful wife and children and am also the co-youth pastor at our church. While I was active duty in the United States Air Force, I also worked as a substitute teacher.  I chose to volunteer as a music teacher at a military base school which had no funding for a regular music teacher. In 2006, I began driving the bus and substituting while acquiring my degree.  I completed short term substituting for two teachers at South Dale Middle School as well.  After obtaining my degree, I taught 2nd grade from January 2010-May 2010 at Midland City Elementary.  I also taught 4th grade for the year 2010-2011. In 2011, I was hired as a 5th English teacher at SDMS. In 2012 I transferred to math and have been teaching math since then. I also teach science.   I am the BASIC (Brothers and Sisters in Christ Club) Sponsor and the SDNN (South Dale News Now) Sponsor. Please visit our Youtube Channel (SDNN Ch. 16) to see our news and daily announcements.  I look forward to a great and blessed year!!!

My classroom rules are:

  • Be respectful
  • Be resourceful
  • Be responsible

Classroom Discipline:

  • 1st time: warning
  • 2nd time: Parent Notification
  • 3rd time: lunch/break/after school detention
  • 4th time: lunch/break/after school detention
  • 5th time: referral to the office

We hope these measures never have to be taken.  Thank you in advance for your support in our classroom rules so that all students have accurate opportunities for the greatest potential in learning. All learning is imperative and disruptions to others or themselves impedes this availability for learning.  We want students to have fun learning, but we also want their focus and attention centered on classroom instruction. Thank you again parents and students alike!
