I graduated from Kennesaw State University (magna cum laude) in 2003. While earning my Masters in Education in 2007 from Piedmont College, I added another field – Secondary Social Studies. After completing the master’s program, I immediately enrolled again with Piedmont and acquired my Specialist Degree in Teaching and Learning (2009). I also have my Gifted Endorsement.
I am retired from the military where I served as a weapons system technician aboard nuclear ballistic submarines, and more recently, as a naval intelligence specialist. I’ve been lucky to travel the world and work with people from around the globe. I have coached middle school football and wrestling here at CMS. Currently, I am an assistant wrestling coach at Cartersville High School.
I have been married to Kim Poe, a language arts teacher here at Cartersville Middle School, for 26 years. We have two daughters, Kaylin and Madison, who both attended Cartersville City Schools. Kaylin is presently pursuing a degree in speech pathology at West Georgia University. Madison is beginning her post-secondary education at Georgia Highlands College. She plans on studying chemistry in preparation for medical school.
I love teaching here at CMS. I am honored to teach with the best staff in Georgia. I really enjoy teaching our awesome and diverse student population. GO CANES!
