It is with great pride and excitement that I have accepted the principalship of Sulphur Springs School. This is my 15th year in public education. During my career, I have served as a classroom teacher, a graduation coach, and as an assistant principal. I began my career as an agricultural teacher. I gained a passion from observing how all things grow. It’s very obvious to me that a lot of people have been nurturing growth at Sulphur Springs School!
I graduated from Elizabethton High School and completed Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I received a Doctor of Education degree from East Tennessee State University in Educational Leadership. My wife Erica and I have three children, Rya, Grant, and Lillian. We enjoy spending time together as a family doing just about anything.
As a school community, we will work together to ensure our students have every opportunity available to them. In doing this we will have fun and we will support each other. We are available to our students and all stakeholders every day at any time! I look forward to being able to meet and talk with everyone in the community while transitioning into the school.
