I have a wonderful wife and two children. My son comes to school with me every day. He is a Junior here at AQ. My daughter graduated last year from AQ. She is now attending college at Nazareth. I am very involved in many different aspects of Aquinas besides teaching which include afterschool supervision of students, Licensed Security for various events held at school, Supervision for sporting events, Licensed School Bus Driver to transport students/faculty to various events, senior retreat chaperone, and periodically volunteering in the concession stand during football season. Also, because of my children, I am very involved in the Theatre side of Aquinas!
I also enjoy a great deal of camping per an RV. My family loves to travel to many different places to camp, explore, meet new people and make new friends. It's a great time to spend with family and learn new things! I love the outdoors yet am not the most avid winter enthuisiest. I love to enjoy Disney during the winter break when I can get my family away for a while. It gives a bit of relief from the cold winter wind blown short days and long nights!
I love animals in such that there are many in my classroom. Many can be held and or just touched to get a hands on understanding of what they are like. Most of the animals are not your typical house pets! They include: 5 snakes of which 4 are Ball Pythons and one a Boa Constrictor (many of the students enjoy holding them), 1 Bearded Dragons, 2 Leapord Getco, 2 Gold fish, 1 very large Rhino Iguana, 1 Tarantula, 1 Pirhana and 1 Oscar fish, and many Rats! The rats are for feeding to the snakes, bearded dragon and Iguana. We have a very strict rule per feeding ! We DO NOT Name the food! Aside from the creatures in my classroom, there are many plants of different varieties and sizes. Many have called my room the "ZOO" or "TROPICAL JUNGLE"! Which would be fitting names for it. Please stop in for a visit! All are welcome!
