    Hi! Welcome to my site!  What?  You would like to know more about me?  Great! 
    I was born in Erie, Pennsylvainia.  I moved to Texas at the start of my freshman year in high school.  I graduated from Barbers Hill High School where I lettered in the "killer b's", baseball, basketball, and band.  I was all-district in baseball, captain of the band, and Honor Society treasyurer.  What happened in basketball?  I don't know, but it is hard to score from the bench.  I could have been great, except for the fact that our other point guard was better than me.  Well, he was.
    After high school I attended college at Lamar University, Slippery Rock University, and Edinboro University in Pennsylvania.  I played one season of college baseball at Edinboro.  I graduated from Edinboro with a degree in Secondary Mathematics in 1986. 
    I taught junior high and high school mathematics for about 20 years at a few different schools.  This is my second year to teach teen leadership, art, and physical education at DPHS - North.  
    My wonderful wife's name is Lori.  That's right, Lori Laurie. (Really, really.)  And yes they are pronounced exactly the same.  I have two great kids, Kaitlyn and Kevin.
