  • I am very happy to be here at Abilene High School.  I have been in education for over 20 years.  I taught social studies in various districts from Coleman to Odessa for 12 years before I became an administrator.  I was an assistant high school principal in Midland, Merkel and Hondo for 9 years and a building principal in Winters for 3.  In that time I worked 8 years in alternative schools.  I enjoy working with young people, they keep my life interesting.  My wife works in AISD central office.  I have a daughter in her last year at Angelo State and my son is in the Army stationed in South Korea.  My hobbies are hunting, fishing and camping.
