I began my teaching career 15 years ago here at Tellico Plains Elementary School. As a Tellico Plains native, there is nothing that I am more proud of than helping educate children from my hometown. I have spent most of those 15 years teaching fourth grade science and math, but I was given the opportunity to become the physical education teacher in 2018. I feel blessed to serve in that capacity because I can now be a part of every student’s education at TPES. I am married to Debbie Plemons, who is also a teacher at Tellico Plains Elementary. We have one son, Jackson. In my spare time, I enjoy running, mountain biking, spending time with family and friends, floating the river, and sitting by the fire with a cup of coffee.
