Having been in the physical education field for the better part of a decade and working on both the East Coast and the West Coast, I have experience with kids from three to fourteen years old. After receiving my Masters in Physical Education from Hofstra University I taught in both public and private schools including SFUSD and NBFA in Connecticut.
I was born and raised on Long Island, NY. After undergrad studies at Marist College in upstate NY I earned my Masters from Hofstra University on Long Island. I moved to California in 2014, married in 2016, and now have 3 beautiful children- Emry, Aniah, and Caleb. When I am not teaching or being a full-time Dad, I am very active in my church (Echo) and help run the Echo Monday night men’s gathering. I also lead a student Bible study on Sundays and am the main baptizer at the North Campus. For fun I love to play soccer and basketball, work out, sing, play the piano, and play video games.
Christian Philosophy of Education
Students should know first and foremost that they are a loved and cherished child of God. School can be really hard with many different ups and downs. Having one’s identity in Christ is something that I believe should stay constant. I value always striving to learn and implement the practices of Jesus with my students. Sometimes the lesson is not about a PE skill but rather integrity, patience, or how to love a brother or sister in need. PE class follows the same priorities as everything else we do: Love God first; love others like ourselves.
