My wife and me at the beach
  • My family and I moved to Swansboro in 1998 when I accepted a school counseling position with Onslow County schools.  In 2008, I had the privilege of joining the Swansboro Elementary School faculty.  My three sons started their education at SBES and my youngest son was able to attend school with me until he moved on to Swansboro Middle School.  If life couldn't get any better, all my sons are graduates of Swansboro High where my wife is fortunate to teach - thus, our whole family works,  lives and attends school in Swansboro.  We have found Swansboro to live up to its name and truly be the "Friendly city by the Sea". 


    Mr. D's Beliefs:  All students can achieve and meet high standards that will result in college and job ready skills.

     Student developmental needs are best met by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program that is planned, managed, delivered and evaluated by licensed professional school counselors.

     School counselors are leaders, advocates and collaborators who support equitable access to a rigorous curriculum and opportunities for self-directed personal growth for every student.

     Data must be analyzed and developed into goals that guide the comprehensive school counseling program which promotes student achievement.

    Licensed Professional School Counselors adhere to ASCA Ethical Standards to promote the maximum development of every student.
