I have dedicated my life to working with kids. It’s all I truly love doing. I have been one of the luckiest guys in the world to have many amazing caregivers and positive role models in my life. Those people have made me a person I’m proud to be and that is what I want to give back to the world. In doing so, I have been a long-term manny, ran an after school program, worked four summers at two amazing summer camps and taught in a formal classroom. Reading and writing are two of my biggest passions, and helping students enjoy literature and write well has been incredible! Literacy is imperative and I love helping to build on it. Also, stories are fun!
When working with kids, safety is my number one priority followed by amazingly good times! I have a lot of energy and I’m very active. I love to play and have a great imagination. I build strong relationships with kids easily and understand how important that relationship is. I value that the most. I like to share my passions with the kids I work with. Aside from reading I love to swim (which I did competitively for 12 years), play tennis, saxophone, sing, draw, work on my Spanish and ask questions (because learning is the best).
