I have taught students with special needs in the Altoona Area School district for 30 years with 27 of them being here at Juniata Elementary. I feel very fortunate to spend my days with the endearing students in the Life Skills program. I am privileged to be a part of such a great staff that support and uplift one another. I reside in the Bellwood area with my wife where we have raised three children. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, running, and planning trips to the Outer Banks.
