I was born and raised over the river and through the woods in Ohio, about 90 miles from Level Green Elementary.  I'm the oldest of 5 children to a great Mother and Father.  All of my family still calls Ohio home.  It was a great place to grow up.  The trip isn’t far so I get to go back often to visit.  


I graduated from Beaver Local High School in northeastern Ohio in 1992.  


I started my college education at Mississippi State University and then graduated from Fairmont State University in West Virginia.   


This is my 22nd year teaching 2nd grade at Level Green Elementary School and my time here has been great.  The students, the families, the staff, and the community of Level Green Elementary are fantastic and always supportive.  I couldn’t have asked for a better place to teach.  


My Family...


This is my wonderful wife, Amanda. We've been married for 23 years. Amanda's a chemical engineer and Vice President of her company. She grew up in Plum Boro, PA.  



Here’s Snoopy the cat. She’s a pudgy and well rested cat.



This is Lucy. She’s a little cat but she biggest snuggler.  



Here’s the Legend: Dawg the Cat. She was our first cat and friend for 19 years. Sadly, she passed away in April of 2020.
