Faculty Bio


I am currently in my 32nd year of teaching high school students in Blount County. My first 25 years were spent at William Blount High School, and I have had the privilege to teach and coach at Alcoa High School since 2013. At present I am teaching English IV and Russian I and II courses, but in the past I have taught all levels of high school English as well as world history, U.S. history, and U.S. government.  I am also the head boys and girls track & field coach.
