    We are ready to learn!

     
     Greetings!!
       Second grade is going to be a blast this year!  The students in this classroom will learn a wide range of topics, as we focus on our math skills, reading fluency and comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, grammar and phonics.  Our classroom is a safe and fun place where students learn and grow.    
       Teaching here at York Haven with these kids and my colleagues is a true dream job for me.  My mom has a story saved that I wrote in second grade at St Lawrence, Cathedral.  I wrote that if I couldn't be an NFL quarterback, then I wanted to be a second grade teacher.   So I guess I've been preparing for this for over 30 years. :0)  I truly do love this job!
       Some background on me...
    I live in the Harrisburg area with my wife of 18 years and my three amazing kids, who are 11, 8 and 6.  Besides teaching, I spend most of my time hanging out with them and going on adventures and trips.  We love to camp, so we spend a lot of our summer trying out new state parks and other campgrounds.  We also like to visit Hershey Park and attend concerts and sporting events.    
       It is very important to me for my students and their parents to feel comfortable with me.  Please never hesitate to contact me with ANYTHING!!
