Welcome to my page. This is my 4th year at MHS and also my 4th year in Catawba County. My family lives in Winder,GA but I actually grew up in Alabama. I am a preacherś kid so we have moved around quite a bit. I have been married for 3 years to Nikki Hawkins. We have 3 kids, Austin who is 12, Taylor who is 9, and Bennett who is 2. My family is my heart and soul and nothing is more important. We attend First Baptist church in Maiden and are actively invloved. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in Health and PE, but I am currently teaching Exceptional Children. While studying at KSU, I held 4 jobs and sometimes all within the same week. Working two nights a week at Dicks Sporting Goods, Five days a week at Nalley Infiniti, Valet attendant on weekends, and detailing cars on the side I really had a hard time fitting in school. Funny thing is the more jobs I held, the better I peformed in school. After graduation from KSU I continued to work at Nalley Infiniti and substitute taught at local schools because the job market for teachers was not looking good. Through all my hard work and determination I landed a job teaching Health and PE at East Cobb Middle in Marietta, GA. Little did I know that East Cobb Middle would prepapre me for the rest of my life. My journey has been short, but ever tough. Maiden is my home now and the future looks bright.
