Hello and welcome to US History.

The 2015-2016 school year marks the beginning of my time at Prosper High School.  I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work with the students in Prosper ISD.  This will be my 15th year in education.  Previously I have spent nine years at Cedar Park High School, two at Stony Point High School in Round Rock, and three at LaPorte High School.  In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I will also be serving as a football and powerlifting coach. 

Born the son of a teacher and coach, we moved around from time to time.  I spent time in Sugarland, Vanderbilt, Victoria, and ultimately graduated from LaMarque High School in 1995.  From LaMarque, I moved on to Sam Houston State University where I graduated in 2001 with a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology and History and was fortunate enough to be a three year letterman on the football team.  I have since also earned my Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University. 

I have been married to my wonderful wife Katie for 13 years and we have two beautiful daughters.  Sophie (7) will be a 2nd grader and Sabrina (5) will be starting in kindergarten.  Both will be attending Cockrell Elementary.
