Dear parents,

I am so excited to be joining the Eden Gardens team this year!  I will be teaching your fourth grader science and social studies, which are two of my favorite subjects, and will soon be their favorites as well.  I look forward to incorporating unique science experiments, hands-on projects, and technology to make science and social studies fun.  It is going to be an awesome year!

I am from Shreveport and graduated from C.E. Byrd High School, where I met my wife, Holly, who is an ophthalmologist.  She is also an Eden Gardens alumnus and still retains her Eagle spirit.  I received a B.A. in Political Science and a Masters in Teaching from Louisiana Tech. This will be my eighth year teaching elementary school.  I have taught for seven years in Caddo parish, and I taught one year in Andover, Massachusetts, while my wife was finishing her medical training in Boston.

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing summer!  I spent my days organizing my classroom, running, and hanging out with my daughter.  Caroline Friday Guy spent tons of quality time with her dad this summer and is ready for a bit of a break, I’m sure.  She will be an Eden Gardens Eagle in a few short years!

I look forward to meeting you all.  Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress.  My email address is  I will try to respond as soon as possible.  With your help, we can make this an amazing year for your child!
