I have been an educator in the Owen district for 21 years.   I spent those years at Owen High School, where I was the band director for thirteen and a half years and an assistant principal for seven and a half. Prior to my time there, I also taught band in Lake View, South Carolina for five years. I earned my Bachelor of Music Education (Instrumental) from Mars Hill University (then college); and my Masters in School Administration at the Western Carolina University. I believe in teacher leadership, because our teachers are our educational experts, innovators, and problem-solvers.   I want to work with our community and stakeholders to continue to grow Owen Middle School in positive directions. I want our work with our students to help them along the path toward self-discipline and a good work ethic, while learning how to solve problems that they will encounter in work and life. Owen Middle School students should leave here prepared to thrive in our amazing "Valley" community or anyplace in the world that they choose. There is no limit to the impact our students can have in this world...please join us in helping your children achieve their dreams and ambitions.
