About the Teacher

     I received my undergraduate degree in History from New Jersey City University and then attended St. Peter's University in Jersey City acquiring dual certification in Elementary Education grades K-6, and Social Studies grades 5-8. I began teaching at St. Aloysius School in the early 1980s.  From there I taught Physical Education, Health and Computers in a number of schools including Our Lady of Victories, Our Lady of Czestochowa, and Primary Prep in Jersey City as well as Our Lady of Mercy in Whippany.  I returned to St. Aloysius where I taught 7th and 8th Grade Social Studies with an 8th Grade homeroom for a few years. I returned to The OLC School when the opportunity arose.
     I am married with two beautiful daughters and a beautiful wife and love spending time with them. I love music and my favorite hobby is playing the guitar, reading about guitars, shopping for guitars or just about anything to do with guitars! I enjoy sharing this hobby with my students whenever I can. (See my Beatlemania page). I also enjoy technology (when it works right) and vacationing in Wildwood Crest, N.J.
     I love being a teacher! It's who I am.
