I am extremely excited to be part of the Centennial family! I grew up in Wingate, North Carolina and then attended Western Carolina University and earned my degree in Music Education. I then taught for 5 years at all different grade levels from K-12 as a music and band teacher. After 5 years as a teacher, I took a journey into the business world was the Operations Director at the Chick-fil-A in Fuquay-Varina for 5 years. While at Chick-fil-A, I learned so much about business operations, people dynamics, and building a strong team. Most importantly though I learned that I love teaching and wanted to come back to the classroom. My eventual goal is to become a school principal and so I gained my Math certification in order to have a broader experience that would allow me to serve students better.
I love spending time with my wife and kids, whether it is going to church, camping, reading, or playing in the backyard! I love high-end coffee, fiction books like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, and cheering on the Miami Dolphins!
