I am very excited to be back! This is my 9th year teaching and the second in 5th grade. Throughout my teaching career I have taught in a few different counties. I spent 1 year in Loudoun County Virginia (Steuart Weller Elementary), 5 years in Washington County (Eastern Elementary), and now 3 years back home in Frederick where I have always wanted to be.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I attended Chesapeake Community College where I earned an AA in Liberal Arts and Sciences. I then enrolled at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) earning a BA in Psychology. Finally, I attended Frostburg State University where I recieved my MA in Teaching (Elem. Ed.).
I am a product of Frederick County where I have lived my entire life. I attended Thomas Johnson High School and Catoctin High School (where I graduated) playing baseball all four years. I was blessed through hard work and dedication to receive scholarships to continue to play baseball through college at Chesapeake and UMBC.
These days I enjoy exercising, playing golf, coaching, inspiring others to be great, and spending time with my family. This spring I will again be coaching Varsity Baseball at Catoctin High School. My wife and I currently reside in Frederick with our 3 year old son Liam and 6 year old Yellow Lab Boh.
It is my goal to make each year of teaching better than the last, and I am pumped to get started and make a positive impact on all of you! Shine On!
