    This is my 13th year teaching. I've taught all grades K-5, except 3rd. I have taught at private and public schools. Kindergarten and 2nd tend to be my favorites. This year I am excited to be teaching English Language Learners for the first time. I've been married almost 20 years to my highschool sweetheart, Kimberly Coates. We have two teenage children, Addison and Andrew. I like spending time with family and lifting weights. Weather is my main hobby. My favorite weather is ice and snow in the winter time. I have a Bachelors degree in Broadcast/Meteorologhy from Mississippi University.
