I am in my fourth year of teaching at Bob Jones, having gone back to school to pursue a masters degree after spending 20-plus years as a sports writer and sports editor in the newspaper field. I have taught World History, Early U.S. History, and AP European History.
I am also entering my eighth year as the Bob Jones boys tennis coach.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Paula, and we have three children. Katie (27) played collegiate tennis at Young Harris and UAH and is in her first year of teaching English here at Bob Jones (she also coaches the BJ girls tennis team).
Will (24) ran track and cross country for UAH and is currently in PT school at UAB. Maggie (19) is a junior at the University of Alabama and is studying abroad in Colombia.
We also have an out-of-control Lab named Bobo, who chases shadows and thinks she's a cat, and an actual cat named Measles (don't ask).
I have enjoyed my time at Bob Jones immensely thus far and look forward to working with your student!
