I am a graduate of York Catholic High School (2007) and after high school, I attended Kutztown University. I graduated in 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I later received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Loyola University of Maryland in 2020. I started my teaching career in Baltimore County Public Schools, and taught at Dundalk Elementary for 10 years as a 1st and 3rd grade teacher. My family just moved back to Pennsylvania last year, and I began teaching for Red Lion at LJM Elementary as a 4th grade Science and Writing teacher. I live in Stewartstown and I am married with 2 children (Kolton - 6 and Karly - 3) and we have a dog named Kallie.
