I attended Tulsa Public Schools as a student. Following high school, I graduated from Langston University with a degree in chemistry and earned a Master’s degree from Northeastern State University in School Administration. My teaching career began in 1983 as a science teacher and baseball coach at McLain Senior High School. I’ve served in many positions and schools within TPS. I currently serve as interim principal of TRAICE Academy. I’m married and have one daughter. Both my wife and daughter graduated from TPS.
