12th year teaching science

5th year teaching science at Loftis Middle School


I have always lived in the Chattanooga Area and I attended public schools in the Harrison, TN area. My personal interests have always centered around family, animals, and the outdoors. The study of the sciences, especially biology, fostered these interests and I graduated college with a bachelors degree in biology. Afterwards, I pursued Veterinary Medicine at UTVC. However, after completing 54 hours, I decided to leave the program to pursue interests in a family business. After a 16 year stent in the business, I began my teaching career teaching high school biology and 5 years ago I was very fortunate to begin teaching 6th grade science at Loftis.
