• About Me
     
             

        I have lived in  Western New York my whole life. I am a product of the Clarence School District where I was a Scholar Athlete and Player of the Year for the school’s volleyball team.  From there I attended Syracuse University where I majored in Inclusive Elementary Education with a second major in English and Textual Studies. After college I immediately began the job search and was quickly hired by Iroquois Intermediate. While working here I have obtained my masters degree from the University of Buffalo and now hold permanent certifications in elementary education and special education. This 2020-2021 school year will be my eighteenth year as a fifth grade teacher.

     

         Outside of school, I have three daughters ranging in ages from thirteen years-old to nine years-old.  My wife and I met in high school and followed similar career paths into education.  We also have two dogs adopted from the Marilla Pet Connection and one cat that we adopted from the Ten Lives Club.  Some of my hobbies include playing volleyball, reading, rooting for our Buffalo sports teams, and playing with my girls.  I know how important my children are to me and that is why I take the responsibility of working with your children so seriously.
