About Me
Pedagogy (Philosophy on education):
Everyone can learn and be successful. It is up to the teacher to guide and direct the students in their education. It is up to the students to be responsible for their education and take account of their actions. It is the parents' role to support their student and ask questions on a daily bases to ensure their student is learning something from being in school.

I'm from Rochester, NY (Upstate New York) where I became a hockey fan more than anything else. I became an Eagle Scout at the age of 15 and knew I wanted to be a teacher since 16. I decided technology because I liked hands-on activities more than history lessons and essays. I knew my wife since first grade though not from first grade until present, we went to different middle and high schools.

I've been teaching at Northeast since 2013. I have two dogs: a Black Chesapeake Labrador Retriever named Penny and a tri-colored Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Micra ("Micro doesn't sound girly" - my wife). Penny has found very interesting way to get my attention at home and is so energetic most other dogs don't like her after five minutes, or less, of being in her company. Micra acts very similar to a cat, she'll chase laser pointers around, has amazing vertical leaping capabilities, and I could have sworn I heard her 'meow' on several different occasions.

One (of many) unique facts about myself is that I can dislocate my right shoulder, and pop it back into place; I learned how to do the latter after the former happened.
