All About Me

  • I grew up on Long Island, in New York and moved to the Lehigh Valley after obtaining my Bachelors Degree in Behavioral Science from York College of Pennsylvania.  I worked as a counselor for children with emotional and behavioral disorders for several years before going back to school to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher.  I earned my Elementary Teaching Certificate from Kutztown University in December 2006.

    I have been teaching 5th grade in the Northwestern Lehigh School District since 2008.  

    My wife, Kate, also works for the Northwestern Lehigh School District. We both love it here and consider ourselves lucky to be part of this wonderful community. We have two sons. Brady, who is 10, and Samuel who is 8.


    I am an avid sports fan.  The Yankees, Giants, Knicks and Rangers are my favorite sports teams.  I enjoy spending time with my family and I love to draw.

    One piece of advice I would give to all of my students is to have the courage to try things that you may not succeed at the first time.  Some of the most successful people in history failed more than anyone else we know.  However, we remember these people not for their failures, but for the great things they achieved after refusing to give up.

    I look forward to having a productive and exciting school year!
