I  teach Civics & Economics and American History 1 and 2.  I graduated from North Johnston in 1991 and while in private business, began coaching in the basketball program at North Johnston in 2006. I began coaching in the softball program in 2011 and moved into the clasroom in 2015, originally teaching World History and Civics & Economics.  Since 2015 I have been the Head Softball Coach and the Head Basketball Coach since 2016. 

  • With our transition to remote learning for our students during the government mandated school shut down, I will begin posting supplemental course work for each class in Google Classroom each day. For students that do not have a device, they may check out a device from school. Information to check out a device, including the form required to do so is located on our North Johnston High School Home Page. For students without internet access, you may pick up a packet at North Johnston High School. Students and parents, if you have any questions, please contact me by email ( and I will reply as soon as possible.
