I have taught elementary physical education for 5 years and 1 year of emotional/autistic support at another Pennsylvania school district. I coach boy's lacrosse and enjoy sports and physcial activity of all kinds. I am originally from Dillsburg, Pa but spent my college years at McDaniel College in Westminster, Md where I earned a B.A. in exercise science and physical education, with minors in sports management and coaching, and a M.S. in education. I student taught in the Carroll County Public School system and taught elementary physical education there for 4 years before moving my teaching career to Pennsylvania.
I enjoy spending my free time with my wife of 4 years and our 3 year old son as well as coaching high school and youth sports.
