I live and teach in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA.  I am a proud product of the Philadelphia Public Schools.

My wife is a middle school Language Arts teacher who has always proven to be an inspiration to me - we both love the integration of reading, writing, and history. 

We have three children who keep us busy and remind us daily of the importance of education and that we teach someone else's children.

I have been a high school social studies teacher since 2002 - my second day as a student-teacher was on 9/11/01.

Courses taught - AP Euro, AP Macro, AP Micro, Western Civ, Modern US, Global History - grades 9-12.

BA History, MS Reading Specialist

I am a firm believer in cross-curricular writing and close reading analysis
