We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole community.

I love to read, scrapbook and camp with my family.
I am an adjunct for Xavier University, teaching language arts classes to prepare student teachers. At the building level, I am the 6-9 Team Leader, on the Building Leadership Team, on the Curriculum Team, on the Montessori Excellence Team, on the Response to Intervention Team and on the Staff Development Team. I also train student teachers from the University of Dayton.
Dayton Rotary Club “Service Beyond Self” Teacher of the Year
DPS Teacher of the Year Candidate
Franklin B. Walter Outstanding Educator
Academic Background: I have a Masters’ Degree in Montessori Education from Xavier University. My undergraduate degree was in Elementary Education and was awarded by Bowling Green State University, Ohio.
Family: Wife/Husband/ Kids
I have been married for 44 years, have three adult sons, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Why did you become a teacher:
I became a teacher because I have always loved working with children. I remain a teacher because I still love working with children after 34 years in the profession.
I dreamed I saw a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher-the tools she used
Were books, music, and art.
The other, a parent, worked with a guiding hand,
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled with a touch,
That was careful and sure,
While the parent labored by his side
And polished and smoothed it o’er.
And when at last, their task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child.
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed
If either had worked alone.
For behind the parents stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment was watching one of my third level students accept the “Yes, I Can” award in New York City, New York, as the International winner. This boy was a special needs student who got off the bus on the first day of school not able to speak or tell me his full name as a first level student. He progressed to the point of being able to speak, learn and read! When I nominated him for the award, he won local, district, area, state, national and international recognition for himself, his family, his school and Dayton Public Schools.
