About Me

  • All About Mr. J.

    Hello! I can't wait to start my ninth year at Allen Creek, all of which have been in 4th grade. Prior to teaching at ACE I was a paraprofessional at Mendon Center and a substitute teacher in various districts. Besides being certified in childhood education, I also have a Master's Degree as a Literacy Specialist.

    When I'm not teaching I'm usually just spending time with my family. My wife and I have two kiddos-  a super active 4 year old, Carter (he never stops!); and a 9 month old, Camryn, who is on the move and into everything! We had a blast this summer enjoying family vacation in the Poconos, baseball games, zoo trips, cookouts, boat rides, and walks everyday with our chocolate lab/vizsla mix, Brody. When I can sneak away for a bit you can usually find me at the golf course or basketball courts. I'm not a big cold weather guy, but the winter time means one of two things- the Sabres/Bills game by the fireplace or making snowmen in the backyard. This year is going to be awesome! I can't wait!!
