It is an honor to be entering my 16th year of teaching at Shamokin Area. I started my career as an educator at the Line Mountain School District, where I taught 6th grade Earth and Space Science in the middle school for four years. For the past 15 years, I have had the privilege of teaching at my alma mater, working with the wonderful administration, faculty, and staff at the Middle/High School.
Since transferring to Shamokin Area in the 2003-04 school year, I have taught middle school courses such as Physical Science, Earth and Space Science, Life Science, and Environment and Ecology. At the high school level I have taught Environmental Science, and now Biology I and Biology II. My certification areas are: Biology, General Science, and Earth and Space Science. I have also been the head baseball coach at Shamokin Area for the past 10 seasons.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Upon completion of my bachelor's degree, I enrolled at Susquehanna University, where I completed my secondary education certification.
Away from school I enjoy the outdoors, particularly hunting and fishing. I am an avid sports fan, and I love the 76ers and Penn State football team!!!
Most importantly, I am the lucky husband of my wife Jill, and father of two incredible boys, 5-year old Chance, and 1-year old Cash.
