I am so excited to be the librarian at Carpenter Elementary this year amidst the move to the new building! This is my 9th year at Carpenter and my 29th year teaching overall. I am originally from New Mexico. I moved to Texas when I went to college at Dallas Baptist University ('91) and stayed here. My wife, Jennifer, and I have been married 25 years. We have three children, two boys who attend Mary Hardin Baylor University and a daughter who is a sophomore at DPHS. My hobbies are reading, golf and taking students to summer camp. I also umpire girl's softball.
