I am super excited to be the Title I Literacy Coach at Highland West Jr. High this year! This is my 9th year as a teacher with Moore Public Schools. This is my second year as a Literacy Coach and at the junior high level. I began my career at Houchin Elementary in 2010 where I spent 2 years teaching Reading and Language Arts. The majority of my time with Moore Public Schools, has been at Apple Creek Elementary teaching 6th grade from 2013-2017. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Oklahoma in 2009 and my Master's Degree in Reading from the University of Central Oklahoma in 2017.
I have an amazing wife, Amber, who is the love of my life. Between us we have 3 kids. My son Troy is a sophmore at the University of Oklahoma. Amber's oldest daughter Kelley just graduate from Moore High School last year and her youngest daughter Addison is in 4th grade at Apple Creek Elementary. We love doing things as a family as much as we can!
I am looking forward to this year! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I believe working with parents helps students become lifelong readers.
