I grew up in Long Island NY in a nice town called Huntington. I attended Huntington High School where I was a 3 sport athlete playing football, wrestling, and track. When I graduated I went to Suny @ Oswego State which is a Division 3 NY state college where I wrestled all 4 years of my college career, while studying Health Science where I received my Bachelors in Science with a minor in Coaching.
After Oswego I decided to go to school for Education. I attended Hofstra University where I obtained my Masters in Physical Education. During that time I was a substitute teacher for my home district, Huntington, as well as several other various districts on Long Island.
While I was obtaining my masters I was coaching wrestling not only in Huntington but in Manhasset school district as well at the High school level, and also middle school baseball for Manhasset.
After moving to Colorado to find full time employment I started my career in DPS working part time at Grant Ranch K-8 where I taught K-5 students and coached middle school soccer, and flag football. At that time I was also working for South HS as their assistant wrestling coach.
The following year I moved to Marrama Elementary where I brought several new programs to the school such as Archery, Colorado bike day, and soccer for success.
Moving to Florida Pitt Waller has been a great experience. I am now not only engaging with middle school students on a new level, but coaching flag football as well.
In my spare time I enjoy being outside. I love to hike, camp, ski, snowboard, mountain bike, stand up paddle board, canoe, as well as other outdoor activities.
I am looking forward to working with your student, teaching him/her about life long fitness, and health topics that could improve their life for the long haul while they engage in social skills and skill developing activities that promote healthy lifestyles.
