Welcome to Pine Tree Middle School! Go Pirates!
Welcome to Pine Tree Middle School.
I am starting my fourth year here at Pine Tree Middle School. Before becoming an administrator I spent 13 years as both a high school and college basketball coach. I am a graduate of Reagan County High School in Big Lake, TX and received my B.S. from McMurry University in Abilene and then my M.S. from the University of Scranton. I am married to Elizabeth White who teaches at Pine Tree High School and I have two boys, Eli age 7 and Jackson age 3. I am also a member of advisory board for the Kilgore Police Academy and serve as a boat captain for the Pine Tree Bass Fishing Team.
I am so excited to be joining the team of educators at Pine Tree Middle School. I am beginning my 25th year in education. I taught for 17 years before leaving the classroom and then took the leap of faith in an administrative role. I began my career teaching Spanish and English at Ore City High School where I graduated Salutatorian. I, then, transferred to Sabine Middle School as an 8th grade English teacher. From there, I finished strong in the classroom at Hallsville Jr. High, teaching Spanish, English and Speech. I spent 8 years in an administrative role at New Diana ISD, first as an instructional facilitator at the Intermediate School, and then moving to the High School and Middle School as Assistant Principal. Through all these venues, I have had the privilege of gaining knowledge in various experiences.
I knew from my 6th grade year in school that I wanted to be a teacher. I never deviated from the plan, nor questioned my intents. My work experience has been one I would rather think of as not work. I go to a place daily where I have fun and do my best to impact lives in whatever way I can. For this, I am truly blessed.
