ACT Prep


I attended Muscle Shoals High School in northwest Alabama and graduated with an Advanced Diploma. I accepted a part academic/part athletic scholarship to Bethel College in McKenzie, TN and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Child Learning & Development. Later, I attended Arkansas State University and obtained a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership.


I began my teaching career at Cornersville School in January 2007. At Cornersville, I taught 8th grade English Language Arts (ELA). I was an assistant football coach while at Cornersville and the head football coach for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. I moved to Marshall County High School in January 2015. I have taught English I, English II, English IV, and currently teach our ACT Prep class for sophomores. I currently serve as the assistant head football coach and coach the running backs for the MCHS football team. I help out some with the Cross Country team and try to help various clubs and teams by driving the bus to different events. 



I am married to Heather Denton, who teaches math at MCHS and is head cross country coach, and I have a four year old daughter named Emerson (Emmy) Reese. We have lived in Marshall County since 2007.
