I have been in education for 26 years. I come from a family of teachers. My dad was an educator for 43 years. I have 2 brothers and a sister who teach, and a brother who is a wildlife biologist. I am married to Toni, who also teaches at Haileyville, and we have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. I am a CLEET certified reserve police officer, hunter safety instructor, archery in the schools instructor, and NRA pistol instructor. I teach the concealed handgun classes as well. I am an avid outdoorsman, and I love to hunt everything.
My wife and I own a home in Hartshorne where we enjoy our family, friends and the great outdoors .
