Ed.S. Educational Leadership

I am the proud principal of Southern Guilford High School in Greensboro, NC. I am a husband to Becky and the father of three beautiful children. When I am not running a school or coaching my children's activities, I love watching Florida Gators Football and Atlanta Braves baseball.

I am in my 17th year as a school administrator and I have been in K-12 education for 24 years now as a Physical Education/Health teacher, middle school Assistant Principal, Elementary Principal, and now a high school principal. I earned my doctorate in Educational Administration at UNC-Greensboro. I consider myself to be a practitioner and conducted qualitative research for my dissertation by exploring the functions, roles, and leadership strategies of central office administrators during district-wide improvement initiatives.
