I have spent my career teaching on our island. I taught at Folsom School for a number of years before coming to Grand Isle School
I attended the University of Vermont for my undergraduate work. I returned to UVM for my teaching certification in 1985-1986. Recently I received my Masters Degree in Education from the Union Institute and University.
I like to model the focus of my teaching in my personal pursuits. I am an avid reader! Each year I read all of the nominated DCF and Green Mountain Award books.
I enjoy writing and currently belong to a writing group in North Hero. Each month we meet to share our latest writing pieces.
I enjoy geography and history. For the past 8 years I have been researching schools in Vermont. I am creating a historic inventory of one-room district schools and consolidated schools. I am currently taking photographs of the buildings still in existence.
I live in Milton, Vt with my wife, daughter and three ancient cats.
