My experience in public education spans nearly three decades. After teaching elementary school for 14 years, I took a job as a Research Specialist and was subsequently promoted to Director of Research & Evaluation with the DeKalb County School District in Georgia. I moved to Virginia Beach in 2008 to work as K12 Educational Measurement & Assessment Specialist with VA Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS). Since 2014, I've also served as an Adjunct Professor at Old Dominion University. Retiring from VBCPS last fall has given me more time to write, present at conferences, and consult on educational assessment projects.
I earned my bachelor’s and doctorate in education from the University of Georgia, as well as a master’s degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. My areas of expertise are:
I was born in Gary, Indiana and lived in Canton, Ohio and Danville, Illinois before moving with my parents to Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 11. My wife Heather is an Instructional Technology Specialist with Virginia Beach City Public Schools, my son serves in the United States Marine Corps, and my daughter is a student at the University of Virginia. I played competitive soccer for over 40 years and am an a devoted fan of the sport.
