I have a BA in Middle Childhood Education from The Ohio State University with focuses on language arts and social studies, as well as a BA+ certificate from Ashland University. Discovery School has been my second home since I began teaching 6th grade in 2015.
My wonderful wife is also a teacher. We love to travel and explore new things about our amazing world. In 2017 we trekked over 50 miles through the Salkantay Trail and Machu Picchu in the Peruvian Andes. During the summer of 2018, we backpacked the 40-mile loop in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, as well as 60+ miles of the Sawback Trail in Banff, Alberta. We also visited the Columbia Icefields in Jasper, British Columbia, where we had the opportunity to explore a giant glacier!
One of my passions is writing. I am currently working on a young adult fiction novel and am hoping to have it completed in 2019. Teaching at Discovery School has been wonderful and I am excited for all of the opportunities and adventures to come.
