At the high school where I teach, a placard is displayed in every classroom with the teacher’s name, room number, picture, and what classes he or she teaches. Mine looks much like everyone else’s, but instead of listing “English 3, Honors English 3, and English as a Second Language” on my placard, I requested that it simply say “Lead Learner.” After all, isn’t that what you’d want from a teacher who seeks to inspire learning in his own students? Coming across as the “sage on the stage” is not the most effective way to help others learn new information. Students need to figure some things out on their own, make mistakes, and learn from them. 

I hope I am awarded the opportunity to bring this "lead learner" mentality to the Coffee County Commission. Despite living in Coffee County for over a decade, I still have much to learn about how the county operates. It is not in my DNA to join the Commission with a slew of preconceived notions on how to make this county better. I simply plan to listen to my constituents, and to the citizens of Coffee County, and make informed decisions for the betterment of everyone--especially the children.

We all want Coffee County to thrive in the future, and the absolute best way to do that is to raise great citizens. I have two daughters who attend public schools in Coffee County and, as a teacher at Coffee County High School, I work with over a hundred teenagers every single year. However, I have come to realize that I can only do so much from these two roles to help the children of this county. 

Living off of a teacher's salary and supporting a wife and kids is not easy. I have to live within my means. This also makes running for political office nearly impossible without your support. I don't have any extra money to purchase campaign materials such as yard signs, t-shirts, flyers, etc. I need your help! Please consider supporting my campaign to become a Coffee County Commissioner.
