    Professional Experience:
    I am entering my 19th year in education. My first eight years were spent as a middle school and high school History teacher, the prior eight as an Assistant Principal at three different locations, most recently, Gates County High School. This is my third year as Principal of Gatesville Elementary School. Gatesville Elementary School is my second family. ITS GREAT TO BE A DRAGON!!!!!
    I received my Masters of School Administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in May, 2008. While in this program, I was a member of the North Carolina Principal Fellows, Cohort 13.
    I received my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education (Social Studies)from Lock Haven University (Pennsylvania) in May, 1997
    I graduated from Abington Heights High School in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania in June, 1993. 
    My wife Candace(pictured) has just returned to teaching after a long break. She will be teaching history at King's Fork High School in Suffolk, VA
    We have been married since July, 2004. We have no children.
    I was born in Long Island, NY, and I am a passionate fan of New York Sports, specifically the Mets, Jets, Knicks and Islanders.
    I am also a huge fan of the Florida State Seminole football team. 
    Reading, working out, listening to music and spending time with family and friends are the things I enjoy the most.
    Being an educator is my life's work, there is nothing else I want to do, and nothing else more rewarding.
