- Education Career: 20 years in PWCPS (4 as PWEA Vice President), 24 in public education
- Became an Educator because David feels that public education is the foundation of success and is a lifelong learning process. As an educator, David wants to make a difference in the lives of all students. All children should have the opportunity to receive the best education available to them no matter their social economic status or race. By providing a firm education, we pave the road toward future growth and development of our citizens.
- Chose to serve on the PWEA Board of Directors because members have repeatedly urged him to run for offices and have validated the work that the PWEA has done. They believe that Dave played a key role in making positive changes in PWCS. David remains in the arena as long as members need him to be there
- Outside school and association work, David reads an extensive amount of military history; travels to Civil War battlefields (across the United States) and historic sites all over the world. He enjoys dining out, fine wine in good company, some good friends. Also, David is Vice Chair of the NEA REC and makes annual trips to Florida to see his family there during the summer and major holidays.
- Favorite NEA Member Benefit: Horace Mann and Homeowners' Insurance. "Since enrolling as a teacher in North Carolina, the combined savings is greater than my membership dues."
- Favorite education quote: "America's teachers are the preservers and protectors of our heritage. You save our past from being consumed by forgetfulness and our future from being engulfed in ignorance...But your task is greater than that because with the facts, you must impart the values that give them meaning and context—our most sacred values of human dignity and the worth of the individual." - President Ronald Reagan
