I'm proud to be a member of the Maryvale School district's visual arts department. After graduating from Maryvale, with a regents degree in art and design I continued my education at Buffalo State College where I played for the Buffalo State Bengals Football Team and earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Design and my teaching certification in Art Education. I've been teaching and coaching football upon graduating in 1996. My teaching career began in North Carolina where I taught for one year at small elementary school. Upon returning to Buffalo I had the opportunity to teach at Iroquois Central School Disistrict were I taught all grade levels from 4th to 12th. In November 2001 I was given the distinct honor of returning home to Maryvale. At Maryvale I currently teach at the high School and Middle School, with concentrations in 3-D curriculum content. I also collaborate in coaching the JV football team and wrestling team.
