I am beginning my 3rd year at Austin-Tracy Elementary. Before making the transition to Austin-Tracy I was the Guidance Counselor at Eastern(2 years). Before the move to Eastern, I taught sixth grade, physcial education, fifth grade at Hiseville Elementary. I became the Guidance Counselor at Hiseville during the 2011-2012 school year. I was a Guidance Counselor for 6 years in the Barren County School System.
I have been a part of Barren County Schools for 33 years both as a student and employee. I went to elementary school at Eastern Elementary and was the first class to complete both my 7th and 8th grade years at Barren County Middle School. I graduated high school in 2000. From there I went to Western Kentucky university where I majored in Elementary Education and went back and received my Master's Degree in Counseling. Since then I have received my Rank I at the University of the Cumberlands where I majored in School Administration(Principal).
At home I have a wife of 16 years, Melissa and four wonderful children; Mason (13), Jaycee (11) and Bailee (8) and Holdon(3). When I am not spending time with my family, I have several other hats that I wear. I also am a preacher who enjoys preaching and visiting churches. When I am not there, I also have a hobby of farming where we raise beef cattle. I truly love being outdoors whether it is farming or hunting.
I look forward to a wonderful school year and if you have any questions or concerns you can reach me at Austin Tracy Elementary at 270-646-2236.
