I graduated from Millersville University in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a specialization in science. In the fall of 2009 I began my first teaching assignment in Harford County, Maryland. During my tenure in Harford County I taught 4th grade for 4 years and 5th grade for one year. In 2016 I began pursuing my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in STEM. In 2014 I had the privilege of returning to my roots and continuing my career as an educator in Penn Manor School District at Eshleman Elementary School as a 6th grade teacher. My wife and I both live in the Lancaster area and both teach in Penn Manor School District. Outside of the classroom I enjoy both mountain biking and road biking around the Lancaster area. When not on a bike or in a classroom, Lancaster’s coffee shops remain my third home.
