I spent my first year teaching 1st Grade at South Hanover Elementary. Then, I moved to 5th Grade at South Hanover for three years before moving to the Middle School. This will be my 19th year teaching 8th Grade American History. I graduated from York College and hold my Masters Degree as well. My wife teaches 2nd Grade at Nye Elementary. I have a stepson ,Brady, who is a senior in college at DeSales University. We also have three daughters here at Lower Dauphin: Alexa (Junior), Brynn (Sophomore), and Kenzie (6th Grade).
