I am happy to be a part of the Woodland family. This is my 23rd year in education, eleven as an administrator and twelve as a teacher and coach. This is my 6th year at Woodland. I have worked in education at every level from pre-k to college. This is my 17th year working with middle level students. I have a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Hendrix College, a Masters of Education from the University of Arkansas, and I have completed a program of study in Educational Leadership through Harding University. My wife, Jennifer, is an RN and we have two children, Katie and Will.
