Degrees and Certifications:
Drafting I and Architectural Drafting II and III
I have worked for 22 years in combination of drafting and civil engineering fields. I have experience with AutoCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, 3D Revit, Pro-Engineer, and 3D Inventor. This year will be my 7th year in the teaching profession. I work part-time during the school year and full-time during the summer months at Dalton Engineering in Clayton. This opportunity keeps me up to date with the current trends of engineering, while enhancing my CAD skills to share with my students. By learning the latest applications of CAD software, students are prepared to go out and have the ability to work in multiple facets of engineering if they so choose to follow the career path of engineering. My wife Sarah is an Assistant Principal with Johnston County Public Schools. We have three children, Hannah, James, and Charlie.

Canvas is the Johnston County online learning community that I use in conjunction with the classroom teaching and activities for my classes. In some of the class reference material I refer to Canvas as our "e-classroom." What is Canvas? Canvas is a very simple and straightforward teaching and learning tool for students and teachers that keeps parents connected to daily classroom activities. Students will use Canvas on a daily basis to receive homework from teachers, submit completed assignments, take tests and quizzes, participate in classroom discussions, have access to a calendar which lists all current and upcoming assignments, tests and quizzes. It provides the ability to message teachers quickly, and much more! As a parent, you will be able to see graded assignments/quizzes/tests, access the calendar listing upcoming assignments, quizzes and tests, and have the ability to message teachers quickly.
(Please note that PowerSchool is our official Student Information System and that final grades that appear in Canvas may not reflect the official grade which is recorded in PowerSchool. In regard to grades, parents should only use Canvas to see individual assignment/task grades and teacher comments. To access your student's official PowerSchool grades, please stop by the front office and complete a Parent/Legal Guardian Portal Request Form.)How to register for a Parent Canvas account:Please follow this video http://goo.gl/waM9G for a walk through on these topics:
