It is an honor to be an assistant principal at Hazel Green High School. I consider it a privilege to serve our faculty and staff as well as our students and community as the high school’s Athletic Director.
I received my undergraduate degree in Integrated Social Studies and Secondary Education from Urbana University in December 2005. I graduated from Samford University with a Master’s Degree in Instructional Leadership in July 2015.
Prior to being an administrator, I gained experience in the classroom for 10 years. I taught a range of courses in Hazel Green’s history department, everything from ninth grade World History to AP U.S. History. I served as head coach for Track & Field for four years, and spent 10 years as an assistant football coach. Likewise, I have served on multiple educational committees throughout my teaching career.
I am married to Jess Barker, and we have two children, Isabella and Dylan. Our family has enjoyed living in the Hazel Green community for 10 years.
My goal is to make a positive impact in the lives of students. I believe that all students have the ability to acquire their goals for life after graduation. I am eager to support their path to a successful future.
I am proud to be a part of the Trojan Family. Go Trojans!
