My Dream Career
Growing up, sports was a way of life for me, so my dream was to become a professional baseball player. However, as I got older, I realized a better fit was education, which would make use of my patience & passion for working with kids. I became a second grade teacher, but inspired by my older brother who has hearing loss, I am now earning my Master’s in Deaf Education. One of the best parts is my wife is in the same program pursuing her Doctorate in Audiology!
Tips & Tricks
Everyone learns differently, so don’t be afraid to ask for the accommodations you need to help you learn best. Always make sure your devices are working before you start learning. Finally, practice new language all the time; even if you haven’t mastered it yet, you will if you surround yourself with language and vocabulary opportunities!
Spring onto Stage
To me, Spring Onto Stage means to set yourself apart from others. Figuring out what makes you special is important. Work hard to become the best you can be at what you love.
Have you ever heard of a ‘13th Streeter’? Probably not, because according to the Guinness Book of World Records, there is only one street where you can attend preschool through college all on the same street in the same neighborhood, and I am one of the few people who have done this in Reading, Pennsylvania, making me a 13th Streeter!
