Team Member Bio:
I was born and raised in Strasburg, VA. I was fortunate to come back to my hometown after graduating from James Madison University. I am a life-long educator. I have taught at the elementary and middle school levels. I coached several sports at the high school level. I am currently the Instructional Technology Supervisor for Shenandoah County Public Schools. I enjoy teaching workshops and classes on how to effectively integrate instructional technology. I have been teaching undergraduate and graduate-level courses at Eastern Mennonite and James Madison Universities. I have taught many workshops for Lord Fairfax Community College as well.
My wife and two daughters are also educators which I am very proud of. I enjoy doing outdoor activities. Hiking and camping are two of my favorites. I enjoy cycling as well. I joined Unison EDU because of the opportunity to work and learn with other educators.
