Welcome to my home page.
I teach Physics and coach tennis. This is my 40th year to teach and 28th year at West Orange Stark High School. I was born in Selma,  Alabama and moved to Newton, Texas when I was three years old. I graduated from Newton High School and The University (of Texas at Austin). I am a SALESMAN OF EDUCATION.  My wife taught kindergarten, my oldest daughter teaches 2nd grade, and my youngest daughter is a hearing specialist.  Education has been a very important to my family, going all the way back to Patrick Henry, who was an ancestor on my mother's side. I hope I can be the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE that leads students to a career in science.
