I offer you greetings from the Business Education Career Technical Department at Oak Grove High School.  I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Below is a little info about me.

I was born in Columbus, Mississippi. I moved to Birmingham, Alabama when I was 6.  I currently reside in Hueytown, AL.  My wife, Kewanna, and I were married in 2003.  She is a native of Alabama.  We have two daughters: Kezia  (2007) and Michal Bethany (2009).  We are both teachers.  I teach at Oak Grove High School (grades 6-12). My wife teaches online classes for ACCESS, home-schools our daughters, and is a part-time Zumba instructor. 

I received my first undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Samford University in 1997.  I received my second undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in 1999 in Information Systems Management.  I have taught grades 7-12. I’m also a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I graduated Luther Rice University with my Masters of Divinity in May 2011.  I have taken more than 40 online classes since 2005. Therefore, I understand the online environment from a student perspective. I’ve taught Business Technology Applications & Workforce Essentials through ACCESS many times.  The class I have taught the most at Oak Grove is Business Technology Applications and Career Prep.

I enjoy studying God’s Word, listening to John MacArthur’s daily radio message at, Christian rap, trying new restaurants, playing basketball, and playing video games with my wife.

Grace and Peace
