Welcome Students!
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” 
― Jack KerouacOn the Road

About Me
This is my fourth year teaching English/Language Arts in H.P. I've taught 7th grade, 9th and 10th grade Honors courses, 12th CP, and this year will be all 11th grade (CP, Honors and AP).  

I am an avid reader and writer. My favorite novels include "On The Road", "The Great Gatsby", and "The Kite Runner", among others.

I enjoy going on long road trips and hiking. The picture above is from a Pacific Coast road trip with my friends from a few years ago, and our first stop was Mt. Rainier. I'm also a Knicks, Giants, Yankees and Devils fan. 

I look forward to a great school year!
