I received a BS from Eastern Kentucky University, a Masters in Education from U of L, and a Rank 1 in Administration and Supervision from Western Kentucky University. I spent 35 years as a teacher, principal and the Director of Transportation for Bullitt County so I am very familiar with the system.
