Degrees and Certifications:
Hello West Maple Families,
I am the Physical Education teacher at West Maple. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education degree and then received a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Wayne State University. I have been teaching since 2012 and coaching varsity lacrosse since 2011. I began my career in Detroit where I served as the K-8 Physical Education Teacher and Middle School Athletic Director. I am currently the Birmingham Varsity Lacrosse Offensive Coordinator as well.
I love my job because I have a passion for making a difference in students’ lives and I am fortunate enough to work with an amazing staff that values a positive school culture. My goal is to motivate every student to pursue a healthy active lifestyle and develop personal-social skills that will lead them to a successful future. In my free time I enjoy traveling with my wife, hiking, snowboarding and love playing golf, hockey and lacrosse.
