I have worked in elementary education for 16 years–all in Henrico County Public Schools. This school year will be my 7th in an administrative role and third as an Associate Principal at Donahoe Elementary. Previously, I was a Resource Teacher at Sandston Elementary and Fair Oaks Elementary. Before that, I was an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher now known as an Innovative Learning Coach for two years at Carver, Echo Lake, Johnson, Seven Pines, and Three Chopt Elementary. Before my Technology Coach years, I taught for seven years at Springfield Park as a 3rd grade teacher. My last year in the classroom, I was honored by being nominated and selected as one of the Henrico Citizen’s Top 20 Teachers in Henrico County. Before getting my own classroom, I was an SOL remediation teacher and substitute for three years at Twin Hickory, Crestview, Lakeside, and many other elementary schools. Every new year is just as exciting as the first!
I was born in Cleveland, OH, but I grew up in Richmond, VA. Growing up, I attended Henrico County Schools: Pinchbeck Elementary, Byrd (Quioccasin) Middle, and Douglas Freeman High. I completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Richmond, as well as my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy from the University of Richmond’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies. I currently live in the Henrico County, VA with my wife, Melissa, and two daughters, London and Ruby.
To try and stay active, I play in basketball and softball leagues. I also can’t pass up 18 holes of golf! I am a huge University of Richmond Sports fanatic. To go along with my passion for Spider Sports, I am also the on field and on court Emcee for the Spider Football and Basketball teams! GO SPIDERS!
