On a Personal Note.....
This is my first year at Hulbert, but I plan on being here a very long time. My wife is from this area and it is important to me to have family nearby. I'm not really a long walk on the beach kinda fellow, but I do enjoy a long run on a hilly windy road. In addition to running; I enjoy photoshop, weights, and writing the occasional blog. Although I coach and love Football and Basketball; my true love for sports centers around Rugby. Provided my wife doesn't find out, I hope to be back out on the Pitch soon. Teaching is my passion and I consider myself lucky to be able to do the job that I love. I'm excited to be a new member of the Tahlequah First Baptist Church.
