In the past 7 years, we have established an outstanding program and look forward to continuing our good work. I am married to Lynn who teaches at 4K at Jackson School.

I received my B.S. degree from Newberry College in 1981.  I completed my Master’s Degree from Capella University in 2010 and received my administrative certification shortly thereafter.

I began my teaching career with Kershaw County School District in the summer of 1998 at Camden High as a Physical Education/Health instructor, assistant varsity football coach and Head JV Boy’ basketball coach.  I became an assistant principal in June of 2012. I am thrilled to be working with our teachers, staff and student body in the capacity of assistant principal for the 11th grade.

I am a firm believer in the notion that with time, patience, understanding, commitment, dedication and hard work all students have the capacity to learn and reach their full potential in life. I look forward to continuing with this process in our commitment to Bulldog Excellence.

I'm elated to be the new Assistant Principal at Camden High School.

Since 2012 I have worked at Stover Middle School as a writing teacher, reading interventionist and most recently Assistant Administrator.  I grew up in Greenville, MS and earned a Bachelor's of Business degree in Business Administration.  After working for FEDEX in Houston, TX for 17.5 in various customer service and service assurance positions, I pursued my passion to teach.  I began teaching in 2003-2004 and received my teacher's certification from Region IV Educational Services.  I taught 5th and 7th grade in Spring Independent School District my first three years of teaching. After residing in Houston for 22 years, I moved to South Carolina in 2006 due to my spouse's corporate move. I taught in Richland School District Two at three different middle schools where I held various leadership positions and was afforded the opportunity to experience opening two new middle schools. In 2010, I earned a Master's Degree in School Leadership with secondary principal certification and 2011 an Ed. S. in Educational Leadership with elementary principal certification.

I have been happily married for 29 years and have three amazing children, a twenty-five-year-old son who's pursuing his passion of playing professional basketball overseas, a twenty-one-year-old daughter in her senior year of nursing school at Tuskegee University, and a twenty-year-old daughter, elementary education major, who transferred to the University of South Carolina from The University of Alabama.  I love listening to gospel music, traveling, shopping and reading.  I'm excited about serving our families, students, and staff at Camden High, a school committed to excellence!
