I was born and raised in East Providence, Rhode Island where I was involved in dance and gymnastics. After graduating high school, I accepted a scholarship to Springfield College in Massachusetts where I competed on the gymnastics team. after an injury put a halt to my gymnastic career, I joined a dance company in the city of Springfield since I could not sit still. I am a kinethestic learner and know that most children learn best through movement thereby engaging brain and body simultaneously.
This is my 8th year teaching Physical Education at Imagine Indigo Ranch. Prior to teaching here in Colorado, I have taught in Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, and Texas. I have had the opportunity to teach in many different settings with many diverse populations enriching my learning experience. My focus in class is on improving fitness and teaching kids to live a healthy lifestyle.
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Music! I first taught in Southern California and was very proud of the program I built at Casimir Middle School in Torrance. My wife Madeleine and our triplets Stephanie, Kristen and Scott left for Colorado Springs and fell in love with this beautiful place. I continued to work doing all things musical outside of a school setting by recording an album and performing with a variety of musical acts, yet it took a while to find a home as much as the one I had left behind, and then did so when I was hired here at Imagine in 2012. I love there is an actual curriculum for Music for every grade level, we have built a huge after school program that includes Guitar, Choir and Band for Elementary students, and the study of Guitar is now a weekly class for everyone in the middle school. While programs involving music may be struggling elsewhere, the Music is booming here at Imagine! If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to be in touch!
