Howdy! I am very happy to be at Mann MS teaching science and coaching boys’ athletics. My coaching duties include football, strength and conditioning, track (discus), and powerlifting. I am originally from Abilene and I attended Jane Long Elementary, Mann Jr High, and Abilene High. I was active in sports playing baseball (Northern) and tennis. I played tennis at Mann JHS, Abilene HS, and Texas Tech University. After graduating from Abilene High School, I attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX and received my Bachelors degree in Exercise Sport Science and Biology, and I also have a Masters degree in Athletic Administration from Ohio University. I began my teaching and coaching career at Lubbock Estacado High School where I taught Biology, and was the head tennis coach. I then moved to Round Rock to open a brand new high school and begin a new tennis program as head coach at Stony Point High School. At Stony Point, i taught Biology and IPC. My career would eventually take me to the coast of Texas where I became the head tennis coach and biology teacher at Galveston Ball High School. My experiences throughout the state have allowed me to learn many different strategies for the classroom and have allowed me to work with a very diverse group of students. I look forward to having an AWESOME year with my students and athletes.
