Schools are a place where students have many opportunities to grow academically, and mature into young productive adults. I believe that failure is not an option and I am willing to do whatever it takes to help a student succeed and achieve their goals.

Leadership (Fall 2011)
I went to high school in Cudahy, Wisconsin. During my high school years, I participated in many academic and athletic opportunities. I was all state in 3 different sports (baseball, football and track). As a senior in high school we were fortunate to win a state football championship. High school was a great time in my life, and I intend as a teacher and administrator to help students have that same positive experience.
I played collegiate baseball at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for 4 years and was a team captain 2 times, as well as all-conference in the Horizon League.
I have been a teacher and coach for the past 10 years in several different roles. Most recently I was the AVID Coordinator and elective teacher in the School District of Waukesha at South High School.
I am excited to join West Allis Central as the Dean of Students. It is my intention that I will be able to help students learn and grow.
In my spare time I stay very active. If I am not working out, golfing, playing volleyball, or softball, you will find me riding my Harley Davidson. I am engaged to be married this spring to Bridget. We have an amazing Boston Terrier Sophie.
