Welcome to GTCHS, I look forward to working with all of our students and parents so we have a great and successful year. As I do every year, I will post assignments, announcements, videos, and study materials in Google Classroom (links to Google Classroom can be found under the Helpful Resources tab). Parents and guardians will get an invitation to view Google Classroom at the beginning of the year, if you accept that, you will get emails about your child's Google Classroom assignments. If you want to view our Google Classroom, then you need to have your child log in to see what exactly is on our Google Classroom page. Please feel free to call or email me for help if you need it.
If you want to view each class syllabus or see our weekly class schedule and homework that will be due, use the Course Expectations tab.
My official after school office hours are every Wednesday until 3:30 but I am also willing to schedule after school time with students who want it. My planning time during school is between 11:00 and 12:00 every day if you want to try and contact me during the day.
Students in all of my classes need to have a three ring notebook with loose leaf paper, pens or pencils (I am not too particular) and colored pencils will be used from time to time in my class if you want to pick them up.
A little about me, this is my 30th year teaching and my 6th year at GTCHS. I grew up in Greenville and went to Wade Hampton High School - after that I attended Clemson University where I studied history and economics. I have a great love for Clemson, and Littlejohn Coliseum (home of the basketball team), was named for my great uncle JC Littlejohn. (You can tell people it was named for me if you like)
I have a wife who is the media specialist at Stone Academy and my daughter is a sophomore at Clemson this year. We also have a cute little dog named Rosie, so I am the fourth most important person at my house.
I like sports (especially basketball), traveling, going fishing, playing golf and being outdoors. I love a good steak and most seafood and it never hurts to bring me Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
I enjoy teaching social studies, coaching the varsity girls basketball team and working with our students. (They all love my awesome jokes!) We have a great school, staff, group of students and parents.
I am very happy to be teaching at Greenville Tech Charter.
