About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Rush Springs High School in 2000.  From there I attended college at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma where I received a bachelor's degree in Art Education.  My focus was on drawing and painting.

National Board Certified Teacher, 2009

AP College Board Certified Teacher, Studio Art

Current Position:

I began my first year of teaching at Marlow High School in the fall of 2013.  This is my second year and I am excited to be learning more about the community and students of the Marlow area.  There is a great deal of pride in this small town and I hope to bring pride to the artistic abilities and accomplishments of our students!  I currently teach three different classes: Art 1, Art 2, and Sculpture/Ceramics.

Previous Position:

Prior to working at Marlow, I taught 9 years for Comanche Public Schools.  I began my first year of teaching there in 2004 after graduating college.  I some great experiences while being employed there.  I worked with students to submit Advanced Placement art portfolios and had about a 66% pass rate.  Believe it or not, that is successful for the extremely rigorous AP exams.  Some of the most beautiful student artwork I have seen has been from the curriculum of that course.  We also took a trip to France and Italy with the art and French students to tour European art museums focusing on a majority of works of the Rennaissance.  Major cities wer Paris, Milan, Florence, and Rome.  This trip, along with church mission work, has led me into 9 foreign countries that have left many unique impressions and experiences on my life and relate often to my teaching experiences.

Personal Information:

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, photography, gardening/landscaping, and remodeling properties.  I am trying to get experience with owning and managing rental properties.  I also enjoy spending time with my wife Sarah and daughter Layla who is almost 4.
