    Bio: I joined the team here at Currituck Middle in  December of 2014 and feel very honored to be here.  I taught high school biology in the great state of Kentucky (I am a big time UK fan) for twenty seven years prior to my arrival at CCMS.  My wife, Senta and I really love this area. We had vacationed here many times in the past and now have the opportunity to live in our vacation spot. The good people of Currituck County have made us feel right at home.  We are starting to feel like locals.  I look forward to many successful years here at CCMS.
    In my classes, we will emphasize the importance of thinking like a scientist.  We will learn how science knowledge and skills are used in our everyday life, no matter which vocation we choose.  This year we plan to incorporate more hands on learning in science.  Observation and communication are a couple of skills that will be emphasized.  One of our goals will be to learn something new every single day.  All of us should strive to be life-long learners.
    I am excited to be teaching the eighth grade science classes this school year.  We will be working hard, working smart, learning the practical applications of science, and hopefully loving it.  I am looking forward to seeing some fresh and friendly faces this year.  Students be ready to hit the ground running and prepare for success.  
    Middle school is an important transitional time for our students.  We will strive to develop good habits and a solid knowledge base that will serve them well as they move on through high school and college.
    Looking forward to another productive and memorable year.
