   Welcome to 5th Grade. I hope this year will be both educational and enjoyable for you! 


"Success is impossible if you fail to try"


	   This will be my 19th year teaching at Laurel Valley Elementary.  I taught 12
years in 6th grade and 5 years in 5th.  I also taught 4th grade for one year. 
I live in the metropolis of New Florence with my wife Lani and two sons, Joey (22) 
and Trent (15). Joey graduated from The Golf Academy of America with a degree in Golf Management. 
He works for a company called Saint-Gobain. Trent is
in 10th grade at LVHS. My wife works at
Indiana Hospital.  I have a dog named Blaze and on August 14th, 2013 I rescued a dog that was
was going to be put to sleep. He is a 7 year old Shih Tzu. His name is Buster. I graduated in 1990 from
Laurel Valley High School
and from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in 1994. In my spare time, I enjoy watching
and coaching sports, reading the newspaper and magazines, going to the beach, relaxing in my
 Hot Tub and spending time with family and friends. I enjoy teaching very much!!!
