Growing up with family members in the medical field opened my eyes to the sciences at a very young age. In addition, living in a more rural area lent itself to exploring the outdoors on a daily basis. I believe those two factors lead me to becoming a teacher with a concentration in the sciences.

Teaching at Penn Charter has granted me the opportunity to continue to challenge myself professionally. Engaging in conversations with my students, providing them with the foundational knowledge to enable them to think critically, and watching them face challenges and succeed are the backbones of my teaching philosophy. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children watching or playing sports and participating in outdoor activities. There is nothing better than watching a Philadelphia Eagles game on a Sunday or watching my children compete in their own sporting events!
