Hello. This is my 19th year teaching 6th grade and I look forward to getting to know my students and their parents throughout the year.
During my free time I enjoy reading, watching tv, visiting local parks, walking my miniature Dauchshund, riding my motorcycle, gardening, and spending time outdoors. I am married and we have 2 kids. My wife's name is Sarah. My son is nine years old and my daughter is six. They keep my pretty busy and I enjoy taking care of them over the summer. I like playing most sports, but I focused on soccer and volleyball in high school. I like watching football, but I enjoy college football more than the NFL (go Penn State!) I grew up around DuBois, PA, so I am more of a fan of Pittsburgh area pro teams. I also grew up close to Punxsutawney so I like to say that I am named after the groundhog.
Feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns you or your student may have about math, science, or social studies. The above link to my main classroom website is where you will find my homework assignments, and some useful websites. Success in school comes from keeping a good attitude and by doing your best each day! Let's work together to make this a great year!
