History: I was born and raised in Garfield Hts., Ohio. After college I spent 4 years in the United States Navy. After leaving the service I began to pursue a career as a teacher. 2 years at Cleveland State and 2 more at Bowling Green have led me to where I am today.
Schooling: Garfield Hts High School, Bowling Green University, The University of the State of New York (BA), Cleveland State University (Elementary Education Certification), Bowling Green State University (MA)
Teaching Career: 1 Year Cleveland Public Schools, 19 years Lakewood City Schools (all at Harrison Elementary).
Future Plans: As I enter the final 10-12 years of my career, I hope to be able to put in place foundations for a hands on approach to science throughout the elementary level, to feed into the programs currently available at the middle and high school levels in our district.
