About Me

Thank you for visiting my page.  I am entering my 19th year of teaching and this will be my third year at Rockport-Fulton HS.  I will be teaching World History and will be the head boys basketball coach along with assisting Junior High football.


I graduated high school from Evant, Texas and then attended Tarleton State University where I received a bachelors degree in Kinesiology with a minor in History. 


I am happily married to Joanna Bates who will be a 3rd grade ELAR/SS teacher at Fulton Learning Center.  We have two sons, Chance will be attending RFHS and in 9th grade and Bryce will be in 7th grade at RFJH.


We are excited to be a part of Pirate Nation and being a part of the Rockport-Fulton community.
