Biography: I began my teaching career in 1990 after completing a Master of Science degree in Administration from now Georgia Southwestern State University. I also hold an undergraduate degree in Computer Information Systems. In May 2007, I earned my Doctorate in Education from The University of Georgia. Currently, I teach Principles of Accounting I and II. Periodically, I have taught Business Communication and Data Analysis using Excel as well. I have taught Business Statistics, International Business, Business Law, and Quantitative Management as an adjunct faculty on-line for Georgia Southwestern State University for nine years.

My teaching philosophy comes from an Essentialist’s point of view. Considered somewhat a rigid philosophy, the Essentialist teacher will teach basic and essential knowledge. I temper the Essentialist philosophy with Progressivism. The Progressive philosophy of teaching stands in stark contrast to Essentialism and basically promotes “free thinking” and democratic processes within the classroom. He feels most teachers blend the various philosophies molding them into a workable embodiment of thought and practice.

Away from school, I have a strong appreciation for the outdoors. I come from a farming family background that appreciates and values family heritage. Being with family and friends that have supported me along life’s journey has been my escape from the routine. I’m an avid collector of WWII memorabilia, and am a huge fan of most of the HGTV programs dealing with home renovations; primarily those involving the older Victorian style homes.

I have a framed saying on my office wall, beside the door, that helps to remind me of why I have enjoyed this job so much. It reads, “The secret of happy living is not doing what you like, but liking what you do.” This adage comes from a spiritual core that has helped guide me with the motto, “to enjoy your work and to accept your lot in life………this is indeed a gift from God”.
