    About Me
     
    This is my fifth year at Alvin High School, and I strive to get the best out of each and every student and athlete, and push them to perform at their highest potential!
     
    I'm in my 20th year of teaching Algebra 1 and coaching High School Softball.  I was at Fort Bend Clements for 12 years, and most recently at Pearland Dawson High School for 3 years.
    I am from Oklahoma, and graduated High School from Guthrie and College from Northeastern State  University.  In High School I played Baseball, Soccer, Basketball and wrestled.  In college I played baseball and volleyball.
     
    I have an amazing family, and consider myself the luckiest man in the world!  My wife Tina, is the Principal at Don Jeter Elementary.  I have 4 wonderful children (Caylin - 15, Dayne - 11, Brylinn - 7, Addyson - 4) 
     
    I'm a very competitive individual that loves to compete in everything that I do.  My keys to life are ATTITUDE and EFFORT, and believe that if I can get my students and athletes to control those things and bring a Great Attitude and Effort at all times........ Then I am capable of getting the absolute best out of them!
     
     
     I am looking forward to the coming year and working with all my students, athletes and teams!
