I come to Pennsylvania by way of Long Island, NY. I attended Central Islip Senior High School and went on to complete my Bachelor of Music from Five Towns College in Dix Hills, NY. Upon completing my music degree, I spent several years teaching music in various public and private schools in PA, NJ, and DE.
After spending many years as a band and choir teacher, I relocated to Columbia, SC. While in South Carolina, I taught MIDI piano class at Dent Middle School. In 2012, I earned my Master’s degree in education with an emphasis in special education. I returned to the greater Philadelphia area and began working as a special education teacher. Currently, I am in the dissertation phase of my Doctoral degree in organizational leadership.
Besides teaching, I enjoy a multitude of hobbies and activities. I play and collect musical instruments. In particular, I am found of the Hammond organ and Pipe organ. I often accompany choirs with the organ during worship services. I am a car enthusiast, collector, and restorer. I enjoy cooking, shooting pool, swimming, bowling, traveling, fishing, and playing board games.
