    A little about myself....

    I have been teaching and coaching in the Jackson School District since December 2007. Prior to my teaching tenure in this district I taught at the American School of Milan, located in Italy, as well as my alma mater Lakewood High School. 

    Before beginning my teacher career I completed my BA in Sport and Movement Sciences and my M.Ed. in Sport Management and Recreations at Springfield College, Springfield MA. During my undergraduate studies I competed on the wrestling team and was fortunate to coach the wrestling team as an assistant while working on my M.Ed. 

    During my time as an educator I have coached numerous sports but my passions are wrestling and jujitsu. I have been involved with both of these disciplines for numerous years and plan to continue in future.
