Educational Biography

I am a native of Gaston County and now reside in Uptown Charlotte.  I attended both the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education (K-6) with a concentration in English, May 2013.  While in college I was an active brother of Delta Sigma Phi National Fraternity as well as a participant in student government and intramural sports. 


I grew up visiting Wilmington and still enjoy spending much of my summer on the coast fishing with my family. I have an eight-year-old English spaniel Mac which enjoys the outdoors just as much as I do.  I value education and the many benefits and opportunities it continues to bring to my life.  I promise to try my best to inspire, challenge, and create an environment that will help your child reach success.  With high expectations and constant support from both parents and me, your child will be successful.  I am currently pursuing a Masters Degree in School Administration at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with plans of graduating May 2018.  Along with a passion for learning, I enjoy challenging myself and look forward to serving our community on a larger scale soon.


I spent my junior year of college working in sixth grade at Kannapolis Intermediate School (2011-2012) and decided to student teach there 2012-2013. I was very excited to have been offered a position at KIS fall of 2013 teaching fifth grade.  Dr. Todd Parker hired me back in 2013, and I was more than excited to be offered an English and Journalism position here at A.L. Brown.  Kannapolis has become home for me, and I genuinely look forward to the growth that will come from working at Brown.
