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 27 years. We have two daughters, Kaylin and Madison, who both attended Cartersville City Schools. Kaylin is presently in the process of pursuing a master's degree in speech pathology. Madison is entering Georgia Tech as a junior this year. She plans on studying biochemistry in preparation for medical school.
I love teaching at CMS and am honored to teach with the best staff in Georgia. This is my 15th year teaching and enjoy helping our awesome and diverse student population. GO CANES!
