This year marks my 19th year in education, fifteen of which have been spent in the classroom. I began my teaching career in Maryland, worked for the National Education Association, outside of Washington DC for four years and have taught the majority of my career here in Douglas County.  


Originally I am from Philadelphia, I have lived in four different states and have been married to my wife, Lisa, for almost 20 years.  Lisa and I are the proud parents of three children: our son Jamie, who is attending Douglas County High School as part of the IB program and our daughters, Hannah, who attends Fairplay Middle School and Emma, who is a student here at South Douglas Elementary.
