started teaching at Owen D. Young in May of 2009. I grew up outside of St. Johnsville and graduated from Dolgeville in 2004. I have had many jobs over the years, from being a farm
hand to working for a general contractor, and I bring these experiences to the
classroom. I graduated from
SUNY Oswego in the spring of 2009 with a degree in Technology Education.
The newest addition to my family is Emerson David. Evelyn Joyce has become a loving and helpful big sister. I love spending time with them. This summer I worked for a general contractor, out of St. Johnsville, the same one that I've worked with since I was 16.
A major family accomplishment this past year was becoming debt free (except our house, for now). We did exactly what I teach in Career and Financial Management, which is following Dave Ramsey's plan of creating and sticking to a budget and paying off our debts with the debt snowball. I am now living proof that this stuff works! I would be more than willing to help anyone reading this achieve the same financial freedom that my wife and I have now.
Another interest that I am looking into is obtaining my Nuisance Wildlife Permit. Some of my hobbies and interest are: bow
hunting, gun collecting, gunsmithing, fishing, residential
construction projects, spending time with family, and basically any outdoor
activity. I am a country boy and I’m
very excited for another year here in Van Hornesville.
