Degrees and Certifications:
I am in my 20th year of teaching at Tippecanoe High School. I began my educational journey in 1979, when I started Kindergarten at Heywood Elementery in Troy, Ohio. In 1992, I graduated from Troy High School. I graduated from Cumberland College (Now University of the Cumberlands) in 1997, with a Bachelor of Science in History and a Bachelor of Science in Political Science. I did not know yet what I wanted to be when I grew up, so I worked in the Circulation Department of the Troy Daily News for two years. I returned to college in 1999, to pursue and education degree at Wright State University, which I earned the following year. I began teaching at Tippecanoe High School in 2000 in the Special Education Department. I was hired in the Social Studies Department the following year. I earned my Master of Arts in History in Novmber 2011, from Wright State University. My thesis was President Harry Truman and the Berlin Airlift. I have dreams of completing my Phd, but with two kids that maybe down the road. I have been the Senior Class advisor for the last six years. If you have a question about Seniors, I am usually the person to ask.
Other interesting or not interesting facts about me. I have been married since 2000. My wife is a Social Studies teacher in another district. Needless to say, our children will not enjoy history. I have two kids. One who is a Fifth Grader. The other is a Third Grader. I have a very busy life with the activities they participate in. I have been to Europe four times. Once as an exchange student in high school. Two with Tippecanoe High School. The final trip as a 6 week tour of 7 countries with my wife. In 2003, on a whim, my wife and I decided to attended game one of the World Series at Yankee Stadium. We spent more time driving to and from New York (20 Hours), than we did in New York (18 hours). If you are still reading this I am impressed.
