When did you realize you wanted to become a teacher?
After graduating from college with a degree in Psychology, I worked for a research project at Penn State University where I worked with elementary school aged children in several rural areas of Pennsylvania. I really enjoyed the work and found that I could connect pretty well with the young children in the program. A little later a friend encouraged me to go back to school and get my degree in School Counseling. I’m very happy I listened to him.
What made you want to teach at an elementary school?
I enjoy the fun and humor of elementary aged students. Middle school and high school students terrify me.
Name something you would like to improve upon.
I would like to improve my basketball skills for our annual Fairhillbasketball game. I continually feel like the guy who brings down the team. I will improve this year.
Which school/university did you attend?
I attended Penn State University for my undergraduate and graduate work.
What do you think of Fairhill? Why do you think this is the right school for you?
For 20 years I have enjoyed working at Fairhill. In the same office and at the same desk. I never get tired of my work as the challenges of my job change year to year. I feel lucky to be at Fairhill all these years and hope to finish my last 10 years here. I love it here.
