Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to begin my second year as Dean at Dominion Trail Elementary School! I look forward to working with all parents, children, staff, and community members to effectively contribute to all the wonderful things happening at DTES. This is my eighth year in education, and third year working in LCPS.
I am originally from the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. I attended SUNY Cortland, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Childhood Education. Upon graduation, I relocated to Wilmington, North Carolina, where I began my teaching career. I also attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I received a Master of Education in Language & Literacy. Most recently, I completed my Instructional Leadership and Professional Development program through Towson University.
I have a wonderful wife who shares my passion for education. In my spare time, I love to exercise, play and watch sports (go Pittsburgh!), and go for walks with our energetic pup. I am looking forward to the year ahead! We are in this together!
