Since starting in Medina in 1997, I continue to enjoy a wonderful career as a Special Education Teacher at Medina High School. I genuinely enjoy the working with students, helping them learn the skills and knowledge they need to be successful. Even more, I treasure the opportunity to establish relationships with them as they work to reach their fullest potential.
I was born in Clarence Center, New York and graduated from Clarence Senior High in 1991. I attended SUNY Geneseo, where I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Education followed by a Master's of Science in Special Education from Buffalo State College.
I am married and have two children who are proud graduates of the Medina Central School District. As a teacher and as parent, I enjoy attending a variety of community and school related activities such as marching band, concerts, art shows, musicals, athletic games, scouting events and martial arts contests. I am also an avid reader and enjoy traveling and making memories with my family. I consider myself a lifelong learner and continually look for ways to improve as an educator and as a person.
