I started teaching before there was electricity in Memphis City Schools. I taught at White Station High School and coached basketball. From there I changed professions; went back to school; became a minister and worked as one in Michigan for many years, both in Kalamazoo and Detroit metro area. I returned to teaching about 13 years ago and came to Chattanooga where I have taught Latin at Soddy Daisy High School my entire time here in Hamilton County.


Married to Marie in 1984

Children born in 1986 -- twins -- Charles and Mary Catherine; Charles is an accountant in Austin, TX; Mary Catherine works in business in Knoxville, TN.

Marie teaches at Daisy Elementary.

We live in the Soddy Daisy area.

I enjoy reading, especially foreign languages. I can read with varying skill-- Latin, Greek, Hebrew, German, even Old English which looks nothig like English! I love most of all being a dad to my children. To a much lesser degree I enjoy Boston Terriers. And, of course,-- Go Blue!!! (University of Michigan Wolverines)
