Degrees and Certifications:
I am a non-traditional teacher in the sense that I started teaching in my mid-forties. After graduating from Cumberlan Valley in 1974 I went on to various careers such as: prescision metal worker, general contractor, truck driving and real estate. I ws in my early forties when I decided to go back to school and earn my bachelor's degree. In 2004 I graduated from Shippensburg University with a BS in history and a teaching certification, (later earning my master of Education degree from Wilkes University). I was hired by Big Spring that very spring and have been here ever since, now starting on my 16th year of teaching.
I live in Perry county with my wife of 45 years, Melinda, who works as a teacher's assistant at West Perry. My daughter Mandy is a counselor at West Perry and my daughter-in- law is a councelor at Susquenita. My son was a former employee at Big Spring but has taken a job with a local medical company. I love my family, I love to hunt and travel and I love to talk as my friends can attest to
