I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I graduated from Elizabethtown College with my undergraduate degree in 2000 and have a Masters degree from Immaculata University. I have spent the last 8 of my 12 years teaching here at Bethel Springs Elementary. I absolutely consider this to be one of the top schools and school districts in the state and country.
Prior to arriving at Garnet Valley, I was also a fifth grade teacher in the Oxford Area School District, the Brandywine School District, and the Derry Township school district( Hershey).
On a personal note, My wife Jill and I are proud parents of a very cute and precocious 5 year old named Ava. Four years ago I had the opportunity to stay at home with Ava and be Mr. Mom! It was a once in a lifetime chance that has changed me forever. We also have a 2 year old named Logan. She is our comic relief and giver of the best hugs and kisses. Finally, our son Ethan is 4 months old and has been the best baby ever! He has a smile that lights up a room. He obviously takes after his father : )
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to spend this year with your child and watch them make mistakes, learn, and grow as individuals. I understand that you are your child's most important advocate and supporter and I consider you a valuable resource. You can always reach me by phone or e-mail and feel free to stop by and visit.
