After high school, I attended Western Oklahoma State College (WOSC) in Altus, Oklahoma for two years. Upon completing my degree at WOSC, I attended Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma to attain my Bachelor and Master degrees.

Since July 1, 2018, I am proud to be a Mogul and the secondary principal at Munday CISD!
In 1988, I began my teaching career at Clinton Public Schools, where I taught elementary physical education, 7th grade English, and I was the head high school soccer coach. During that time, I also was the elementary intermural football and basketball coordinator.
In 1993, I moved to my hometown, Olustee, Oklahoma, where I taught at Olustee Public Schools until 2018. While at Olustee, I taught 7th grade English, 8th grade English, 7th grade literature, junior high and high school creative writing, applied communications, Spanish via Satellite, reading, and driver education. I was also K-12 counselor, assistant principal, principal, testing coordinator, athletic director, bus driver, gifted/talented coordinator, ELL facilitator, EPAS coordinator, and ASVAB coordinator.
My wife, Jeri Lyn, and I have been married since August 1, 1993. Our son Cade was born in 1994. He is married to Alecia, and he attends the University of Oklahoma with a major in International Studies and a minor in Japanese. He is finishing his undergraduate degree in Japan. Our son Eli attends Cameron University, where he majors in Computer Programming. Our daughter, Saylor, will attend Munday CISD as a sophomore. We have two dogs, Olive and Scout, and one cat, Jazzmine.
I enjoy OU football, OKC Thunder basketball, high school competitions, genealogy, Civil War history, watching movies, fishing, and spending time with family and friends.
