Finding topics that get cadets genuinely excited and interested is the best thing about teaching here. Fishburne is a unique place to learn and grow along with the lessons of tradition and order you expect at a military-type school. I like that we can bring boys from all walks of life together to understand what it takes to be a man and a leader in the 21st century. The wide range of opportunities our young men can pursue inside and outside of the classroom is the icing on the cake.
I’m a proud graduate from Virginia Military Institute with Bachelor of Arts in English and a concentration in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I’m working on my Master’s in Education at Mary Baldwin University where I’m specializing in Authentic Learning & Leadership. I am a 2008 FMS graduate. This is my 10th year teaching, 6 of those years were teaching English as a foreign language in Moscow, Russia.
Outside of work, I love the outdoors, traveling, and participating in historic reenactments. I also like to relax with a great film or video games and maintain my vegetable/herb garden on campus.
