Thank you for visiting my page. I am entering my 20th year of teaching and this will be my fourth year at Rockport-Fulton HS. I will be running the Acceleration Lab and will be the head boys basketball coach along with assisting Junior High football.
I graduated high school from Evant, Texas and then attended Tarleton State University where I received a bachelors degree in Kinesiology with a minor in History.
I am happily married to Joanna Bates who will be a 3rd grade ELAR/SS teacher at Fulton Learning Center. We have two sons, Chance will be a Sophomore attending RFHS and Bryce will be in 8th grade at RFMS.
We are excited to be a part of Pirate Nation and being a part of the Rockport-Fulton community.

When I am not spending time with my family or attending athletic events, I love to relax by cooking or reading.
