    Hello and welcome to First Grade! I have my Master of Arts in Teaching in Early Childhood Education from Winthrop University. I also have my Master of Arts in History and Bachelor of Arts in History from Winthrop. Go Eagles! This is my fifth year teaching First Grade here at Mount Holly. Go Mustangs! First Grade is truly my passion!

    Before coming to Mount Holly, I taught Third Grade at Sunset Park, here in the Rock Hill School District. Therefore, I have taught First and Third Grades. Teaching is in my bones and I have wanted to be a teacher my whole life.

    I am married to my sweetheart, Tonya, since April of 2018. We just celebrated our first anniversary this year. Tonya is also a teacher; so we have two teachers in the household.

    In my free time I enjoy cheering on USC Football; go Gamecocks! I enjoy spending time with my wife, reading, cooking and spending time with my family.
