TEACHING EXPERIENCE

This year marks my 29th privileged year teaching wonderfully thoughtful and motivated students in the Clarkstown Central School District. Nine of those years were spent teaching 4th grade, and I've spent the last 20 years teaching 5th grade.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I would characterize my teaching style as challenging, logical, and critical. I have high expectations of my students and myself. To me, a highly effective teacher is one who is highly passionate, highly reflective, and highly engaging. To inspire and encourage the students entrusted to me is my ultimate goal.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Perhaps my greatest honor was having a former student of mine, a sixth grader, comment to me how I was able to make history exciting for him when that had previously seemed an impossibility.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

SUNY ALBANY:B.A. American History LONG ISLAND UNIVERSITY:M.S. Elementary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a wonderfully supportive wife and two terrific children that make me proud to be their father. I enjoy the outdoors (especially building igloos in the winter) and exercising my body (mostly by swimming) and my mind (mainly by creating a prolific amount of material for use in my classroom).
