Physical Education - Grades 5-8
Health Education - Grades 5 & 7
I received my Bachelor's degree in Health and Physical Education from Kean College of New Jersey which is now known as Kean University. I hold a certification in Driver's Education from Trenton State College. I am currently in the process of completing my Master's degree from Gratz College.
I have been teaching Health and Physical Education for 21 years. I began my career teaching 7th and 8th-grade Health and Phys Ed at Belleville Middle School in Belleville, NJ. I transferred over to Union Township in 2001 and have been here ever since.
I started coaching little league baseball and football at a very early age. While at Belleville, I coached High School Football, Basketball, and the 7th & 8th-grade suburban traveling basketball team. Here at Union, I have coached cross-country, softball, baseball, boys basketball and girls volleyball bringing home multiple championships in volleyball, basketball and softball. I was also the Digital Video Club/UTV Advisor for 5 years at UTMS and a member of the faculty advisory council. I am currently our schools running club and sports intraumurals advisor and co-athletic coordinator.
I enjoy spending time with my family and our 2 dogs - "Rocky and Moose". Throughout my life I have been a sports fanatic. I am a die hard Philadelphia sports fan. I also enjoy traveling to different states to visit major league ballparks. I have a vast collection of autographed sports memorabilia and try to add to it as often as I can.
