About Me

Columbia College, Columbia Missouri – Class of 1998

Current Position:

I am a sixth year teacher. This is my fifth year at the Ehrhart School after teaching one year in the Beaumont Independent School District at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School.

I will be teaching 7th Grade Texas History and 8th Grade U.S. History.

Previous Position:

I started teaching during the 2015-2016 school year at King Middle School in the Beaumont Independant School District. I taught both U.S. History and Texas History at King.

My experiences while serving 21 years in the United States Navy had a direct impact on me entering the education field as I encountered and mentored many young sailors dedicated to military service.

Personal Information:

I love being outdoors whether it is hunting, fishing, playing any kind of sport, or just working in the yard.  My favorite sports are baseball and football.  When I am not teaching, you will find me just hanging out with my son and family.  I do love history, both teaching and learning new historical events, ideas, and facts.

2018 STAAR Results

Congratulations to the 2017-2018 Ehrhart School 8th Grade class for its accomplishment on the 2018 Social Studies STAAR Exam taken in May.  76 % passed and 28% mastered the test.  They matched the 2017 class in percentage passed, but more importantly, they surpassed the 2017 class in number who mastered the test, with 5 mastering the test.  AWESOME!!!!

Our deal this year was that if we got 76% to pass and 6 to master, I would color my hair and beard red.  We reached our goal of 76%, but fell just short of the number to master.  However, I decided to go halfway and dye my beard read as the kids put in so much work.  CONGRATULATIONS class of 2018.  You were outstanding.

Social Studies STAAR Results

Great job to the 8th Graders on the Social Studies STAAR test taken in May 2017.  77% passed the test.  AWESOME!
