Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in the Cleveland area with three older brothers in the city of Independence. My grandparents’ first language was not English so I had the opportunity to hear three different languages while growing up. Most of my childhood was spent playing basketball and baseball and going to the local swimming pool over the summers. In high school I played sports and sang in a traveling vocal ensemble and even had some leads in theater productions. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from OSU, Master’s in Education Technology from University of Colorado, and a Masters in TESOL from OSU. Being the English Language Learner Coordinator, I am passionate about building bridges between parents, teachers and children of different cultures.
I love teaching and coaching, and have done both for many years. My wife is an elementary education teacher and we have three boys. Danny is an Ocular Disease Optometrist, Kevin is a High School Teacher and coach, and Johnny is studying Biomedical Sciences in hopes of becoming an ophthalmologist in the future. I love teaching in New Albany!
