A.P. Government and PoliticsClass of 2012

A Gift from My Students

  • A former student contacted over 60 of my former students, without my knowledge, and asked them to write a letter to me with the theme of “what my class meant to them”.

  • She then had it compiled into a hard back book designed by another former student and gave it to me for Christmas 2014.

  • Simply, it is my most prized possession in the world.

  • This is the same student who nominated me for this amazing honor as well.

Coaching – Students on the Field

My Mentor

  • My high school history teacher and football coach, Mr. Bob Jacoby at his induction into the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League Hall of Fame on 6 JUN 2014.

My passions are my family, my children, my students, my Country and our History.

The relationships that I have developed with my students, history-makers and veterans are priceless treasures to me.

Everyday and every class I get a new opportunity to share these experiences and create more.
