Bio

Graduating from the United States Naval Academy with a degree in Mathematics, Dr. Maxwell went immediately into active duty serving in Desert Storm, Haiti, Somolia and Kosovo.  An injury precipitated his departure from the navy at the rank of Lieutenant Commander and an Anti-terrorism specialist.

After returning to the United States, Dr. Maxwell started teaching and coaching in Moss Point Mississippi, where he improved scores on the state Algebra exam dramatically.  A coaching move brought him to Pascagoula High School six years later, still teaching math and coaching football and track.

Dr. Maxwell moved to administration in 2006, becoming Assistant Principal of the Vocational Center, Gautier High School, and the Principal of both Magnolia Middle School and the Alternative Learning Center in Moss Point.

Dr. Maxwell earned both his Master's Degree and Doctorate from the University of Southern Mississippi in Education Leadership.

Following the death of his daughter from cystic fibrosis in 2014, Dr. Maxwell moved back to his greatest passion, teaching mathematics to willing minds!

Dr. Maxwell is thrilled to be on the staff of Hankins and will continue to work to improve math knowledge daily.
