Bio

I began teaching at a later stage in my life because I felt it was my chance to give back what someone once gave me...A Chance! After a successful business career, I wanted to fulfill a life long dream to teach in a classroom. The opportunity presented itself when I was forty-six years old, to which I dedicated the next sixteen years, fifteen teaching eighth grade, and the last year Government and Economics to Junior and Senior high school students.

I began teaching at a later stage in my life because I felt it was my chance to give back what someone once gave me...A Chance! After a successful business career, I wanted to fulfill a life long dream to teach in a classroom. The opportunity presented itself when I was forty-six years old, to which I dedicated the next sixteen years, fifteen teaching eighth grade, and the last year Government and Economics to Junior and Senior high school students. Before becoming a teacher, I was active in coaching my daughter and stepson in soccer, baseball, softball, and basketball through different stages of their lives. Still the desire to teach in a classroom was always in the back of my mind. I can truly say that the experience was tremendously rewarding and gratifying.

My greatest strength is by way of my philosophy that education is a commodity, a good, that needs to be sold and then used to achieve the ultimate degree of accomplishment - success! All students can learn, our job as educators is to find the right path for each individual to allow for them to arrive at their destination. I pride myself in recognizing what motivates each individual student, and then focusing in on their strengths to help them learn in a way that individually they understand.

Finally, from my days of coaching, I believe that discipline and practice is the key to anyone's success. Bobby Knight, one of the greatest college basketball coaches that ever coached said, 'The will to win is not as important as the will to prepare to win.' For sixteen years I had that posted at the front of my classroom and worked everyday with that in mind.
