Hartselle Intermediate School

Honesty. Integrity. Success

At Hartselle Intermediate, students are challenged to grow academically and socially.  The intermediate grades are vitally important for students to develop individual skillsets to enable success and fullfillment as they navigate toward the upper grades, college, and career.  We strive to carefully build upon the foundations of tradition and excellence to expose students to robust classroom opportunities coupled with activities that extend beyond the traditional classroom structure.  We encourage our students to become great citizens with service learning anchored to an intensive focus on character education. 

I came to Hartselle Intermediate in 2014 after 18 years in public education.  Previously, I taught high school science, English, math, and numerous elective courses.  I served as assistant principal, principal, and central office supervisor.   I have served on several state committees and the Alabama Association of Middle School Principals' Board.

I married Kendra in 1991.  We have one son, Benjamin who is pursuing a career in music.  Kendra is the assistant principal at Moulton Elementary.  Our family hobbies include musical performance, songwriting, and spending time on our family farm.
