I was born and raised in Addson, AL. I graduated from Addison High School in 1988. I then attended the Univeristy of North Alabama in Florence. I graduated with a B.S.Ed in 1993 with certification to teach English and history. I then obtained my M.A.Ed in 1997 from UNA in school counseling. I have been employed at Addison High School since 1996, and I have served as the school guidance counselor since 1998. I have coached several sports, but I am currently the varsity baseball coach.
I married Jamie Gaither in 1991, and we have two children and a daughter-in-law. We have all graduated from Addison High School, and we are very proud of that fact.
