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 State 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 years of my career, I feel very fortunate to be teaching at the upper middle school level, in science, and helping students prepare for their formative four years of high school.
