I have been at Tapestry Charter School for the past nine years. My first four years were as a classroom teacher in grades 2, 3, and 4. I have spent the last five years at Tapestry as an instructional coach. I truly enjoy working with all of the staff, students, and families here at Tapestry. Prior to Tapestry, I spent five years teaching in the Rochester City School District in grades 1 and 2. I am certified in Early Childhood and Childhood Education and Students with Disabilities B-6. I have a B.S. from SUNY Plattsburgh and a M.S. from Niagara University. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife Jessica and I have two children, Ben (8) and Lauren (4), who keep us very busy. I also enjoy traveling, reading, and following our local sports teams – Go Bills and Sabres!
