I have spent the last six years in the education world. I was in the special education field for the first three years. These first three years were a great experience for me because I had the opportunity to work with children in Pre-Kindergarten. After that I moved on and worked in first grade for two years. I am one of the few men to have traveled this road. Lastly in the past 3 years I worked in third and fourth grade. I believe my movement around the elementary school has given me a great well rounded resume of experience.
I am a structured teacher. I believe students will learn better in a more structured environment. The better management a teacher has the more fun they can have in the classroom. I am also a strong believer in character education. Character is something that students entering the real world truly lack. I weave character education in as many lessons as possible.
Yet to be added
I have an undergraduate degree in Business Management. I studied at Farmingdale University. I also have a masters degree in Elementary Education. I studied at Adelphi University in New York. I am planning on going back to school for my Special Ed extension.
I am a sports fanatic and truly love all things sports. I believe that more men need to use this website and get involved. One thing interesting about me is that I am a twin and have two younger twin brothers!
