    Teacher Message:
     Since my earliest childhood I have always enjoyed school. What undoubtedly may that possible was that my mom used to read to me a great deal so at an early age I deloped a love for reading that has been with me my entire life. It also gave me a bit of an advatage going in to the first grade which again contributed to my enjoying education.
     
     
     
     
     
    Biography: I was raised in a small town by the name of Charleston in the part of the state known as the Bootheel. It was a grat place to be a kid where I lead pretty much of a Tom Sawyer like existance. Riding our bikes and hiking to the river to fish playing sports etc.
     
    I first attended college at Murray State Univeristy in Kentucky. After that I transfered to Southeast Mo. State in Cape Girardeau where I graduated with a Bachelors in Marketing and a minor in Computer Science.Shirtly after graduating I moved to the Denver area where I worked for Kraft foods in both Colorado and Cheyenne Wyoming. I moved back to the St. Louis area where I went to work for the Gillette company in the military division calling on commisary's throught the midwest. While Gillette was a great company to work for I was never home since my territory was from the Upper part of Michigan to Memphis and points east and west. A good friend had been after for years to become a Chiropractor which he had done so a few years later I graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic. While n practice I would occasionally sub for St. Louis public schools. While subbing at Gateway I was asked if I would take over the Physical Therapy department since the teacher was leaving. I have been teaching at Gateway since while maiantaing my practice n Arnold Mo. It is difficult and tiring at times but worth it.
