I am extremely excited for every new day at Alice Drive Middle. My desire is to see each and every one of our students come to school and SOAR. With our national certification in STEM, we are able to provide educational opportunities far beyond the traditional curriculum. We are helping our students become College and Career ready and building the leaders of tomorrow with 21st Century Skills. I became an educator to help make the world a better place, and I strive to do that every day. In education, I believe you should have fun, but you must always be fair and firm.

I grew up in Ohio and earned my Bachelor’s in Education from Kent State University. I moved to South Carolina in 2012 and have never looked back. I earned my Master’s in Education Administration from the University of South Carolina, so I am a huge Gamecocks fan. My wonderful wife, Emily, is an elementary school teacher. We are both sincere believers in the value of education.

Sumter School District is committed to “Together Sumter: Every School, Every Student, Every Day.” Together we are #SumterStrong.

Go Hawks!
