“I choose to work at Faulkner, because it gave me the opportunity to ‘come back home,’ and teach at the school that I went to as a young man. The guidance and instruction those men and women gave me, has given me the desire to ‘pass it on’ to this generation, and hopefully influence today’s students for good.”
