Physical Education

I am looking forward to developing our students physically, mentally, and socially to the best of my ability. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me via email or by telephone.

I grew up in the village of Camillus, New York, where I attended West Genesee CSD. I enjoyed playing sports from a young age. After participating in a variety of sports, soccer had always been my biggest interest. Music and art have also been a big part of my life. I picked up the trumpet and a little piano and guitar along the way. After graduating from West Genesee HS, I moved on to Onondaga Community College for a semester and played on the men's soccer team. I then transferred to SUNY Cortland where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in physical education. During this time I grew a passion for spray & brush painting. I completed my student teaching at Caryl E Adams Primary School in Whitney Point NY, where I also was an assistant coach for the varsity boy's baseball team. After my student teaching experience, I continued as a substitute teacher at Marcellus CSD. These choices ultimately led me here, at Alexandria Bay CSD where I have started my professional career as a physical education instructor.
