Hello Seahawks

I am happy to be part of your Southside team this year as the Assistant Principal. I have been a high school teacher for 17 years in East NC before making this transition into administration.

I am originally a farm boy from the Midwest. After graduating from Illinois State University, I worked in a both a corporate setting and for Savannah College of Art and Design. After realizing I was a teacher at heart, I attended East Carolina University for an advanced degree. 15 years later, I would attend again to learn educational administration.

I believe all students deserve a safe, fair and purposeful educational experience. I will work my best to provide that for all students at Southside High School. The team of staff and faculty here is amazing and I am proud and excited to be a member. 

Thank you and Go Seahawks!
