Welcome to Mr. Farmer's Home Page

Together Everyone Achieves More! Let's go TEAM!  Without a doubt, it takes a village to raise a child to be a productive citizen.  All stakeholders must play their respective roles in helping to mold and shape the minds of today's youth.
 
Greetings!  Being proud to work in Bear Country, I am striving to enrich the lives of students here at Burke County High School.  For this school year, I am teaching Advanced Composition (General) and 10th Grade Literature (General).   
 
Happily married for five years to my wife LaMesha, I am the proud father of three awesome boys: Dylan 4 yrs old, Daniel 2  yrs old and Dallas 2 months old. Also, I am the author of my first book of poetry entitled The Conversation Within. It is my hope and aim to inspire my students not only develop a love for reading but writing as well.  I firmly believe that my students, with the proper guidance and encouragement,  can become published authors. As a result, their words will live on for generations to come.
