• tennis ball  Hello Flyer Nation...Here is a quick way of getting to know me. This is my 19th year here at the Middle School as a Physical Education Teacher. I began my career in 1999. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching, facilitating programs, running tournaments, and setting up big school-wide events throughout the years. My formal training took place at the University at Buffalo, then Canisius College for my undergraduate work, and then Canisius a second time to achieve my Masters Degree. As you can probably guess from the clip art on this page, along with teaching, coaching tennis, playing tennis, and doing anything related to tennis is my greatest passion. I just completed my 25th year coaching this fall. I also played in high school and college and enjoyed every moment. I was even on TV one time where my doubles partner and I won a local tournament. It was pretty cool to get interviewed when the match was over. My other interests include photography, cooking, and biking. Down the road, my life goal is to build a log cabin and live in the woods with my family and pets.
