This will be my twenty-fifth year as a teacher in East Penn, and my thirteenth year as a teacher here at Eyer Middle School. I am a veteran of the United States Air Force, and have also been a commercial loan officer in the banking industry. I earned my B.S. (in Business Administration with a minor in History), my initial teaching certification, and my M.Ed. from Kutztown University. I have earned many credits beyond my Master’s Degree (hence my belief in students being lifelong learners!). In addition to being a teacher I am a certified personal trainer and am also involved in acting; I directed the Spring Musical here at Eyer for 13 years and have performed on the stage, television, radio, and even a movie. My wife is a nurse practitioner in the field of ophthalmology. We have two grown children; our son is a graduate of Emmaus HS now working in the plumbing industry in Florida and our daughter is an alumna of Susquehanna University with a BS in Music Education and is currently a graduate student at Loyola University in New Orleans studying Vocal Performance in Opera and Classical Music.
My mission as a teacher is to provide students with a safe and supportive learning environment in which they will feel comfortable while enjoying the learning process. I will do this by being a positive role model, giving 100% effort and expecting the same from them, and being fair and consistent in my dealings with them as individuals. In doing so, I hope to instill a lifelong love of learning in them. I also expect them to assume personal responsibility to reach their individual potential, and to respect themselves and others.
