This 2021-22 school year will be my third year teaching Health at Saraland High School and 12th in education overall. In addition to teaching, I am the head JV boys basketball coach and assistant varsity boys basketball coach. Prior to working at Saraland High School, I taught drivers education and was the varsity girls basketball coach at Alma Bryant High School for three years.

My wife, Laura Prater, is in her second year as an English teacher at Saraland Middle School. We have three boys, Colt (6 years old) Dallas, (4 years old) and Slade (Born Nov. 23, 2020). We are excited to be Spartans!!
