“It is easier to go from failure to success than an excuse to success.”


It starts with growth

Potential, my friend, is one of the most wonderful words in any language. It's optimistic. It's hopeful. It hints at greatness. It's full of possibility. It's inside of you. How do you develop your potential? You grow.

Growth is the only guarantee that tomorrow will get better.

It's up to you. The ball's in your court. Are you going to take it or leave it?  But know this: you don't have to take the journey alone.

It's my purpose in life to be that guide, to know the way and help you go after it. My desire is to help you develop the right attitude, discover your strengths, tap into your passion, make gains in your life like you've never seen, and become more in touch with what you're designed for so you can live a happy, healthy, and full life. That's what I want for you, and I want to help you get there.

I'll walk with you. I'll talk with you. I'll share stories with you to help it all make sense. It won’t all be easy, but it doesn't have to be lonely. It will be work, but it doesn't have to be a one-man show. It will take you far from where you are now.

So, are you ready? Let's start our journey together. 



The Automotive Department is prepared to accommodate students with learning the many aspects of auto repair. Paris ISD's Automotive program has many accolades from the district, state and national level. The program has something for every student: from those who want to start a career path to those who want to learn about a hobby. My mission is to provide the students who enter with a National caliber program that exceeds expectations.
