Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be a part of the New Albany family! Before becoming an Eagle, I served as a gifted intervention specialist at Hayes Intermediate School in Grove City for two years. During my time there, I was responsible for running the gifted program for the 5th & 6th graders at our school. Additionally, I have taught middle school math in the past - one year in Columbus at Columbus Collegiate Academy and one year in Durham, North Carolina at Carrington Middle School.
I am blessed to be married to Katie Dugal for the past 12 years, who is a 4th grade Math/Science/Social Studies Teacher at NAIS. We have two boys, Camden (4) & Austin (2), who will one day be New Albany Eagles. I am an avid sports fanatic and at my previous locations I coached middle school football and basketball as well as high school baseball. Additionally, I love getting to see students thrive academically outside of the school setting, while serving their immediate community. For the 2021-2022 school year, I head the New Albany Intermediate Math Counts Program and serve as a Technology Coach & Data Coach at NAIS.
I received my Bachelors Degree from The Ohio State University in Business Education. Additionally, I completed a Bachelors plus program for Middle Grades Math & Science from Ashland University and a Gifted graduate program from Duke University. Finally, I received my Masters of Education from The Ohio State University in Educational Administration.
I am certified in Business Education (Grades 4-12), Middle School Math (Grades 4-9), Middle School Science (Grades 4-9), Gifted Education (Grades K-12), and Educational Adminisitration (Grades K-12).
