All About Mr. J.
Hello! I can't wait to start my twelfth year at Allen Creek, 11 of which have been in 4th grade, but this year I am excited to make the leap to 5th! 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, Nicole, and I have two kiddos- a fun loving 7 year old, Carter; and a super active soon to be 4 year old, Camryn, who is a daredevil and into everything! We had a blast this summer- enjoying family vacation in Saratoga Springs, roasting S'mores by the fire, zoo trips, cookouts, playgrounds, 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!!
