Degrees and Certifications:
My family and I moved down in 2004 from Western NY. Over the course of 12 years I have taught 4th grade, 6th grade science and 8th grade science. I truly enjoy what I do and try to bring all my experiences to the classroom.
A little background on myself, I served in the USMC for 4 years as a recon scout then served 4 more years in the Army Reserves as the Chaplin’s bodyguard. During that time I received by bachelor’s degree in education with a minor in science. I then continued on with my education receiving my masters in science education. Along with teaching I own my own business where I breed venomous snakes for venom research labs, raise alligators and crocks for use in teaching law enforcement and vets how to deal with dangerous and venomous animals, certified animal cruelty investigator, graduated the police academy in 2013, and at times do local contract security for the Federal Govt.
