I was born in Wheeling, WV, and my wife Cherie and I are lucky to have 5-year old triplets.  I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, a Master of Education Degree in Special Education with a specialization in students with emotional disabilities (ED) and learning disabilities (LD).  I also hold a license in administration and supervision.   In the course of my career, I have had the privilege of working at all three school levels, as well as in both the regular and special educational settings.  These unique experiences have challenged me to grow in a different direction both personally and professionally.  I was fortunate to be appointed Principal at Albemarle High School in 2009. Previously, I was the principal at South Lenoir High School in Kinston, NC, and an administrator at Landstown High School and Technology Academy in Virginia Beach, VA.
