Welcome to the Twin Oaks Elementary School family (TOES). Twin Oaks has the privilege of providing a positive learning environment for students in the West Zone in grades three, four, and five. I joined the Twin Oaks Elementary School faculty while student teaching in 2000. After graduating from Georgia Southwestern State University I began teaching at TOES and fell in love with the caring and supportive staff. I taught both 3rd and 4th grade at TOES for 5 years while earning my Masters in Education from Troy State University. The next three years I spent in Lexington, Kentucky where I received my National Board Certification in Teaching. I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade before returning home to Twin Oaks in 2008. I was fortunate to return to 3rd grade and taught for two additional years before my placement as Assistant Principal in 2010. I earned my Leadership endorsement through Valdosta State University and my Specialist through Walden University. In 2015, I was granted the privilege to lead Twin Oaks Elementary School as the Principal. I continue to learn each day and believe everyone should be a lifelong learner. I have a supportive husband named David and three wonderful children- Katie, David, and Lilly.
I have an open-door policy; feel free to call me or any staff member if we can be of assistance.

Being part of the TOES family since 2019 has been a tremendous blessing for me. The faculty, staff, and students are some of the best you'll find anywhere. I joined Twin Oaks as assistant principal in the fall of 2019, having spent the previous 21 years as a grades 9-12 teacher at high schools in Crisp County, Effingham County, Worth County, and Lee County. I have taught Social Studies, English/Language Arts, Broadcast Video Production, Graphic Arts, and Journalism. I advised yearbooks and newspapers for 15 years. I broadcast Lee County football games online and program the stadium's jumbotron. I earned my Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, in 2017, and I completed my Education Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Liberty University in 2022. I have an Associate's Degree in Education from Abraham Baldwin College in Tifton, and my Bachelor's and Master's degrees are from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. I love anything technology-related and learning new things. My amazing wife Melissa teaches at Lee County Middle School West. We live in Lee County with our three wonderful children: Audrey, Zachary, and Levi.
I want what is best for my children and all the boys and girls in Lee County. If there is ever any way I can help you, please let me know.
