Welcome to Military Magnet Academy

First, allow me to say I am proud and honored to be the principal at the Military Magnet Academy for the past sixteen years.

I received my undergraduate degree in history from the University of Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland, and my Master of Arts degree in Teaching from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Alaska. I received my Master of Arts degree in school administration and Specialist in Education degree from the Citadel, Charleston, SC. I started my career in education as a middle school social studies teacher after 26 years of active military duty. While on active duty, I served as an Airborne Ranger Infantryman.
