Welcome students and parents! I am a new 4th Grade ELA BSI Teacher here at Main Road School.
I will be assisting a classroom teacher by providing added instruction and support to 4th Grade students during the ELA blocks in the morning. I am relatively new to teaching as I started my career as an Alternate Route Teacher at Rowan University last year.
I was a Second Grade Inclusion Long Term Substitute Teacher at Dorothy Bullock Elementary in Glassboro NJ last year before being hired here this summer at Main Road School. My first career was a Physical Therapist as I have a Masters in Physical Therapy from Thomas Jefferson University.
I also have a Bachelors in Zoology from North Carolina State University. I am born and raised in South Jersey and grew up in Berlin NJ. I went to Eastern HS in Voorhees and played soccer and wrestled. I have a loving wife and two wonderful children; a 4 year old daughter Isabella and a 2 year old son Dylan. We also have a Golden Doodle named Riley pictured below.
We currently live in Pittsgrove NJ and enjoy vacationing in Avalon or Ocean City during the summers. I am an Eagles Season Ticket Holder and love the Flyers. My favorite food is cheeseteaks and my favorite ice cream is Oreo! I look forward to making a difference in the student lives here at Main Road School and being an integral part of the students success.
I have experience teaching Reading, Phonics, Writing and Grammar. In our classroom we teach a mini lesson then break into centers and small group instruction. We conference with each student and make sure the skill taught that week is understood or if the student continues to need extra practice until it is learned. I would do the same with the student I am tutoring.
I have been teaching 2nd and 4th Grade ELA for the past 2 years and have extensive knowledge and training of Common Core Standards and NJ State Core Curriculum standards. I have the ability to connect with any child to help them do better and help them succeed in and out of the classroom. I like to teach using a wide variety of teaching strategies to improve the students Reading, Writing, Phonics and Comprehension skills. I also have experience teaching Math and a have a strong background in Science with a BS in Zoology and a MS in Physical Therapy.
I encourage you to contact me if you need any help at the Elementary or Middle School levels. I can accommodate most students times after school. Welcome students and parents! I am a new 4th Grade ELA BSI Teacher here at Main Road School.

I currently am an Alternate Route Teacher in my second year of full time teaching at the K-6 Elementary level. I currently possess my NJ K-6 Provisional Teaching CE and am currently hired as a BSI ELA Teacher in a 4th Grade classroom at a school in Franklin Twp. NJ. I will complete my Phases next March 2016 and will obtain my Standard Teaching Certification in K-6 Elementary. I am also looking to be dual certified as I just have to take my 5-8 Science Praxis to obtain that certification.
