I am in my 6th year at WAMS as a special education/emotional support teacher.  I teach resource classes of ELA and Math and work as a co-teacher in inclusion classes.  I enjoy helping students and inspiring confidence in them to be the best they can be.  I believe in teamwork with parents and staff to make WAMS a great place.  

I also have the privilege of being the Varsity Softball Head Coach at WASHS.  Being a teacher and coach in a school district has been a long time goal of mine and Waynesboro has given me that opportunity which I am so thankful for.   

My life outside of school revolves around my family and of course sports!  My wife Kristin and I have a 3 year old son Carter and a baby on the way in March.   I am a huge Penn State football and wrestling fan, a Maryland Terps basketball fan, a Baltimore Ravens fan, and finally a Baltimore Orioles fan.  I enjoy golfing and fishing when I can find the time around all of this.  

I grew up in Chambersburg PA, played 3 sports in high school, then attended Penn State University and Shippensburg University where I graduated with an undergrad in elementary education and then with a masters in special education.
