I am honored and blessed to serve as the principal at Gaston Elementary School. I am a Jacksonville State University graduate. In 2003, I began my education career in Etowah County Schools. My wife, Jessica and I have three wonderful girls named Abigail, Emma, and Nora.  I enjoy spending time with my family, watching Alabama football, and grilling out.  I love the Gaston community and I feel very blessed to work with the students here at Gaston Elementary School

Gaston Elementary strives to meet the social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of our students. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment where our students can thrive. We want all of our students to excel as lifelong learners. Gaston Elementary is a great place to be!
