I am excited to be teaching at Dobson High School. I have been teaching Career and Technical Education classes for the past 15 years: Computers, Career Exploration, Business Management, Marketing and Economics.
My wife also teaches, (Kindergarten 20+ years).This is my community school and my 4 children graduated from here. They are now married and we have 13 grand-kids. Life is good and very busy.
Prior to teaching I was in the business world, (i.e., sales management-Pepsi Cola, pharmaceutical sales/trainer-Galderma Labs). This helps provide real-life experience for lessons and discussions.
I am the DECA Advisor--DECA is a CTE student organization co-curricular with Marketing.
I oversee the operation of our student store called Circle D with a 12th grade Student Manager (Intern)
I am also the Internship Program Coordinator- CTE Internships provide an opportunity for 12th grade students to get 2 elective credits for having a job and working at least 10 hours per week.
