Science (SPOC)

I was born and raised in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York! I am very proud of where I come from because it has changed so much over the years and has become the place to be. Today I live in Glendale, Queens but visit home frequently to see my mother and friends. I went to Christ the King Regional High School in Middle Village. My college life has been a wild adventure to say the least! I started in John Jay College, but left after I reevaluated my life. Soon after I went to LaGuardia CC where I majored in Early Childhood Education. My next stop was City College where I majored in Psychology and minored in Sociology. After finally making the decision of where I wanted to be in 20 years I went to Hunter College where I received my Masters in Childhood Education 1-6. A few years later I went to Grand Canyon University where I received my second Masters in Technology Education. I have worked for the NYCDOE for 11 years. The one thing I love most about my job is the children. I love teaching them new ideas and concepts, and I love making connections and bonds with them. My free time is spent with my wife and kids doing anything recreational. I also love attending live sporting events frequently and going to wrestling events with my friends from high school.

I grew up in Bayside, Queens. I went to high school at Cardozo in Bayside and I went to Queens College. I studied Physical Education at Queens College. I have worked for the NYCDOE for 5 years. What I love the most about my job is seeing the look on students faces when they learn something new. I also love having a positive impact on students' lives. I spend my free time playing a variety of sports including basketball and tennis. I also like to go to the gym and spend time with friends and family. I really enjoy teaching and imparting knowledge on students that they can utilize throughout their lives.
