I grew up in the Rochester area, attending Gates-Chili HS where I played soccer and volleyball. From there I went on to Fordham Univeristy where I majored in history, played soccer and then went on to grad school to get my masters in teaching. Due to a shoulder injury I moved back to Rochester, becoming a long term sub at Spencerport HS and then the following year going to West Irondequoit before coming to Mendon in 2002. I have taught Global 9, Global 10, US History, AP Euro and AP World.
On the personal side, I am married with two kids (7th grader and 9th grader) and we have a crazy dog named Lina. I am also a soccer coach for Empire United (2011 girls). In all honesty, if I am not in the classroom, I am probably on the soccer field between coaching and my kids playing.
