    What inspired you to enter this career path?
    I have always wanted to work with kids; they inspire me.

    What motivates you?
    My philosophy of working with kids is that they can all be successful if they have people who truly believe in them, and it starts with me. I am motivated by knowing that my students depend on me each and every day. 

    What do you enjoy doing outside of the workday?
    I am married and have two girls. I enjoy spending time with family, and hunting and farming on the land I own. I also like to fish and play basketball.
