My educational philosophy is based on the ideal that the teacher provides a safe, secure educational environment. The academic setting should encourage critical thinking skills and offer all students the opportunity to attain the highest achievement possible and to be successful in a technology-driven society.
I have a BA in social studies and economics from Monmouth University. I obtained an MSED in administration and supervision from Baruch College, City University of New York. I have also undertaken doctoral studies at Walden University.
I taught social studies to middle school and high school students from 1979-1993 in the Tom River Schools.
I enjoy coaching various sports. I have been an interscholastic football coach, a boys and girls cross country coach and track coach. I have also served as class adviser and activities coordinator. I enjoy volunteering my time as well. I was a volunteer coach for Pop Warner Football Little League, and volunteered to coach my church’s high school interscholastic football team.
