I am originally from Brunswick, Ohio but upon graduation from Bowling Green State University back in 2015 I moved to Kissimmee, Florida where I have spent the first 6 years of my career. During my time in Florida, I taught 6th grade English Language Arts or four years and 8th grade English Language Arts for two years, along with teaching I held various roles in our athletics department such as assistant coach, head coach and assistant Athletic Director. This is my 2nd year teaching 8th grade ELA at Mount Vernon and am excited to get started! I recently graduated with my Master's Degree from BGSU in Curriculum and Teaching. I enjoy spending time with my wife, we have two golden retrievers Jax and Cali who keep us on our toes. I look forward to getting to know all of you and working with you as we progress through the year, if you ever have questions please feel free to reach out.
