***I have been an Erie School District teacher for 26 years. I was born and raised in the city of Erie. Upon graduating from "Erie High" (Tech Memorial), I attended California U of PA and Edinboro University. I proudly served in the United States Navy Reserves for 10 years.
***My classroom is very structured and calm. I enjoy joking around with my students . This helps them feel relaxed in class. Sports have been a big part of my life. This includes coaching basketball for 23 years. I enjoy football, baseball, and MMA as well.
*** I love being a husband and a father of 4 wonderful children. I treat my students as I treat my own kids. My goal is to build a positive relationship with each student. As my own children are very different, I understand that my students are as well.
