Grades 6 and 7

Greetings!  Welcome to my webpage.  I began working at Charles D. Owen Middle School in the fall of 2014.    Prior to that, I was counselor at Erwin High School.  I currently work with all 6th graders and half of the 7th.  Before my life in Buncombe County Schools, I was a substance abuse counselor at the former JEC right across the street from OMS.    I love working in the Swannanoa valley.   I earned my bachelors degree from the University of Florida in 1994 and earned my masters degree in School Counseling from Western Carolina University in 2004.  I live in Candler with my wonderful wife Stephanie, along with 4 cats, two dogs, a bunch of chickens, a few ducks, some rabbits and too many honey bees to count.
