Welcome to Waller High School!

At Waller High School, I have taught Geography (On-Level,  Pre-AP World & AP Human), US History, and Psychology.  I have been teaching at Waller High School since 2005 and love both the school and the community.

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and am a member of the Texas Aggie class of 1990.  I had two professions before becoming a teacher.  Right out of school, I worked in Pennsylvania for Johnson and Johnson-Merck, and later returned home to Texas where I sold industrial products for about 10 years. I had always dreamed of being a teacher so in 2005, I made the leap, got my teacher's certificate, and joined the Waller team.  If they'll have me, I plan on staying here until I die.  This school is blessed with outstanding leadership, outstanding teachers, and outstanding students.

My wife, is also an educator and teachs students from around the world for the Florida Global School.  I have three wonderful kids, two who have attended Waller Schools.  My oldest has recently become a teacher in the Dallas area, so we are a family of educators.

I love my job and cannot wait for August every year to see the new students arrive and helping to form them into the wonderful young men and women that they will become one day.  To the parents of my students, "thank you" for blessing me with your wonderful children.  Let's have a great year!
