I’m super excited, humbled, and blessed beyond measure to serve as Principal of Surry Elementary, effective July 1, 2022.
I have 18 years of teaching experience and 8 years of administrative experience (Assistant Principal, Principal, Coordinator, and Director). My previous administrative experience includes serving as Assistant Principal with the Mighty Cougars at Surry High School. Thank you for allowing me to return to this truly special place!
I received a Bachelor’s in Biology from Christopher Newport University along with teacher licensure; a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from Walden University; and a Master’s in Educational Policy,
Planning, and Leadership from the College of William and Mary. I am currently working on my Ph.D. at Old Dominion University.
My wife, Rachel, and I have two sons, ages 13 and 12. I enjoy the beach, reading, gardening, sports, hunting, and eating. My favorite NFL team is the Green Bay Packers.
We are so proud of our summer school staff and students! They are the source of the motivation for this year’s theme: Work Hard, Play Harder!
I look forward to getting to know all of you and I’m so grateful to be a part of the Mighty Cougar Cubs!
