Hello. Welcome to Lewisburg High School. I have had the pleasure of being a part of LHS since the day it opened. In my first 5 years at Lewisburg, I taught world history and coached football and soccer. I also served as Athletic Director. In June of 2011, I was selected to be an assistant principal at LHS. This year will be my 4th year in this position.
I am proud to say that I am a product of DeSoto County Schools having graduated from Southaven High School in 1997. After graduation, I attended Mississippi State University where I earned a bachelor of science degree in education. My first teaching job was at Armstrong Middle School in Starkville, MS where I taught 8th grade U.S. History and coached varsity football. I left Armstrong in the Spring of 2002 to pursue further education at Northwestern State University. Here I studied Sports Administration and served as a graduate assistant football coach and taught Health and First Aid. After 2 years at NSU, I returned to DeSoto County to teach at Horn Lake High School. In the summer of 2005, I was offered a position to coach running backs at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. While at HSU, I made the realization that working with teenagers is where I was supposed to be, so I jumped at the chance to return to Desoto County to be a part of Lewisburg High School. While working at LHS, I also earned my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.
I believe that education is important to the success of individuals and to the success of our society as a whole. I feel that what a high school should teach students can be summed up in four simple things. The first thing I think schools should do for students is to teach them how to write effectively. The second thing I believe that schools should do is teach students to read and to help them fall in love with reading. The third thing I believe that schools should do is teach students how to reason. The fourth thing I believe schools should do is to teach students how to relate with other people. If we teach our Patriots how to do these four things then they have a great chance at being successful.
