I am really excited that you have decided to take this journey your last year in high school.
It is my hope that this class is exciting, not boring and rarely predictable. I want you to ask questions. I want you to learn. I want you to think "economically" and not think like a studnet any more.
So a little about me. I have not always been a teacher. I have had several jobs, and lived in several states. I have been out of the country three times and love to travel and experience new cultures, places and ideas. I am married and have been for almost 25 years. I have two adult children. You may even know them. They both graduated from MCHS and they both took this class too. Oh, i did not teach them, but they took the course. I have been teaching here at MCHS since 2008, but working here since 2006. I was the High School graduation coach from 2006 until fall of 2008 helping students pass the old high school graduation tests.
I have lived in madison county for about 25 years. We have two dogs; a Boston terrier and an Australian shepherd. We have one cat. My wife and I own a small cow-calf operation and we also raised Heritage Breeds of poultry. I enjoy doing anything outdoors; fishing, hunting, hiking, tracking, canoing, gardening, etc. I love most sports, but only follow football and soccer. I have coached football and soccer here at the high school and football at the middle school in the past. I stopped coaching about three years ago. I will use some sports analogies in the class that might help you understand some concepts better. I love to cook, barbecue and smoke meat on the smoker. i enjoy all kinds of different music.
