About Me

I am excited to be teaching 8th grade math again this year here at Woodbury. I taught 7th grade for five years here and before joining the Salem School District, I taught math at the high school level for a few years. Before becoming a teacher, I was in the biomedical engineering field for almost 20 years. 

Outside of school, I like to spend time with my wife, 3 daughters, and 2 dogs!
