Family & Community

I am happily married to Brooke Jaye, one of the best and brightest math teachers at AHS.  We have two amazing boys, Murray Lucas (3) and new-born Braxton Shanley.  We are active members of Beulah Baptist Church and residents of Douglasville--my wife is a life-long resident and graduate of Douglas County High School.  

Career in Teaching & Learning

I began my career in the fall of 2008 as a student-teacher at Sprayberry High School, in Cobb County.  Following my successful internship, I finished the school year at Sprayberry as a full-time educator teaching World History.  During the summer of 2009, I was given the opportunity to interview for a teaching position at Alexander High School--a position I enthusiastically accepted.  I have been a part of the AHS family ever since--It's great to be in Cougar-Country!
