I grew up and attended college in Pennsylvania. Earning my bachelor's degree in Technology Education from Millersville University, I began teaching right away. I have taught in Arizona for three years, North Carolina for four years, and I am beginning my fourth year teaching in Wyoming.

In the summers I love spending time with my family and traveling around the country and the world. If I had to pick, my favorite part of the world to travel and explore is Southeast Asia. This summer I stayed stateside and went on a road trip with my family from North Carolina up to Vermont. In the picture my wife, daughter, and I are in Virginia on our way to visit family and friends. I am looking forward to this new adventure at the elementary level.
