Welcome to 5th grade!

A little about me...
I am in my 5th year of teaching here at JPE, and my 7th year working for Murfreesboro City Schools. I grew up in Murfreesboro and graduated from Blackman High School in 2005. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Communications from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville - GO VOLS! - in 2009, and my M.Ed. in Instructional Practice from Lipscomb University in 2016.

My wife Kristin and I have two dogs - Emmy and Jack - who we spend a lot of time with. We like to take mini-road trips to out of the way places in Middle Tennessee, and we enjoy spending time with our friends and family.

I love teaching 5th grade math and science, and cannot wait to start teaching this year's group of awesome 5th graders!

Feel free to contact me at or through Class Dojo! 

My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.
