What do you look forward to in your new position?

I’m happy to be provided the opportunity to remain in the New Lebanon family. I’m excited to work with our youngest students, be a part of the fantastic WBH staff, and get to know more of the wonderful families in our district. I can’t wait to experience the energy and excitement that is Walter B. Howard Elementary School.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

My favorite things to do when I’m not working are to hang out with my wife and daughters, play golf, listen to music, and play video games.
