I feel truly honored and privileged to serve as the Assistant Principal of Marshville Elementary. I am humbled and thrilled to collaborate with each of you to maximize the academic and citizenship potential of every student. Allow me to share a little bit about myself. My parents, who escaped Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge regime, raised me and my five siblings with three core values: love people, pursue wisdom, work relentlessly. I summarize these values with 3 H’s: Heart, Head, Hand. These three values have led me to dedicate my life to education. I’ve taught in 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades, with 4 years as an assistant in Kindergarten. After one year as an Assistant Principal, I served as Principal at three schools in the Seattle area and Southern California over a span of 8 years, and then served two years as an Assistant Principal in Tampa, Florida. I am married to a beautiful and amazing wife, Tanisha, with two equally amazing twin sons, Zealand and Rhodes, who will celebrate their 2nd birthday soon. Our adorable dog, BR, rounds out our small family. We moved here to North Carolina at the beginning of 2019 and look forward to planting our roots in this wonderful community. I enjoy horseback riding, traveling, the great outdoors, any food, and all sports and games. I am often found on the basketball court. I am eager to help build the next generation of leaders and scholars who will shape our future. I anticipate a year of tremendous growth, innovation, and pride at Marshville. I am here to serve, so contact me anytime.


At Your Service,
