The thing he hates about teaching is not seeing someone be successful. Before coming to SFS he taught at Oklahoma City Christian Academy and he also is an adjunct History professor at OCCC. He wants students to know he wants them to be successful in life. He’s most proud of getting married and becoming a father as well as a grandfather.
