• Welcome to 5th grade.


     I’m very excited about starting a new year! I know we are going to have a great year working together to guarantee the success of your child. I want to assure you that your child’s success is my number one priority, and I will do everything that I can do to provide a safe, loving, exciting, and productive learning environment for your child. If you have any concerns or comments throughout the year, please contact me.

    I will be teaching your child math and science this year. This is my 12th year as a teacher and my 4th year at Chisholm Ridge. For 9 years, I taught math and science at Northwest ISD, and before that, I taught 6th grade science in Decatur. I have a Masters Degree from the University of North Texas and a Bachelors Degree from Texas Christian University. 

    I grew up in Fort Worth and Oklahoma City, and I spent four years in the Air Force. I’m married, and I have two daughters. My wife, LouElla, recently retired as an air traffic controller. My daughter Alicia graduated from TCU, and Emily is a student at the Texas State University. I have three dogs, two cats and numerous fish.



    Let’s have a great year!
