I received my Bachelors Degree in English from Marquette Univeristy in 2000. Upon graduation, I began my career in the Office of Student Life at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. In 2008, I completed my Initial Teacher Certification at Cardinal Stritch Univerity. I began my teaching career at Columbus Elementary School. After Columbus closed, I went to All Saints Catholic School in Kenosha and taught 5th grade for four years. In 2013, I received my Master’s Degree in Teaching (MAT Program) at Cardinal Stritch University. In 2015, I was hired at Forest Park to be a 1st grade teacher, and this year I moved back to 5th grade. When I am not at school, my wife and I enjoy attending our three sons’ various soccer, baseball, and basketball games!
