    "After graduating from high school in Buena, NJ, I attended Washington College where I obtained a BA degree in Political Science and Philosophy. I was hired by QACPS in August of 2000 and was placed at Kent Island High School teaching Business Law. After a few years in CTE, I was transferred to the Social Studies Department where I remained until 2011. I then began the Teacher Academy of Maryland program at KIHS and was the lead/sole teacher of the program until 2022. I also was certified in PE/Health and taught that for a year. I obtained my Master's in Curriculum & Instruction in 2009 from the University of Phoenix and completed my Administration endorsement through Salisbury University. This summer I began as the Assistant Principal at QACHS.

    I have been a resident of Queen Anne's County since 2000. I have two sons, Cameron who is 13 and is in the 8th grade at Sudlersville Middle School, and Dylan who is 17 and a senior at QACHS. Cameron is an avid baseball player and a member of the Church Hill Fire Department, as well as an aspiring hunter.  Dylan is a member of the Cross Country and Track Teams and is in the process of applying to a few military academies."

    "After growing up on a farm in Carroll County and attending Francis Scott Key High School, I attended St. Mary's College of Maryland. There I played baseball for the Seahawks and majored in History and African Studies. Being unsure of my life path as a senior in college (yes, a little late to decide), I changed from Pre-Law to Education. In my 5th year, I completed the Master of Arts in Teaching and helped coach baseball as a grad assistant there in St. Mary's City. It was during this year that I met my future wife (Ali McIntosh) who was a freshman on the field hockey and former Kent Island High student athlete. 

    Fortunately, I was offered a social studies teaching position at the same school (Great Mills High School) that I did my student teaching. After coaching at the high school level for two years, I was offered the opportunity to return to St. Mary's College as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator. Over the next six years, I taught US History (9th Grade), AP US History, and AP Comparative Politics at Great Mills High School. During this time, Great Mills High School had the highest scoring AP scores in the county for APUSH and AP Comp. Politics. 

    During the Fall of 2018, Ali and I were married at Stone Tower Winery in VA. That winter we decided to attempt to move to the Eastern Shore and closer to Ali's parents home on Kent Island as we expected our first child. Sebastian was born in August 2019, Ali began a new job in Edgewater, and I took over the Department Chair position for Social Studies at Severn River Middle in Anne Arundel County and continued to pursue my baseball passion by helping the Shoremen Baseball Program at Washington College for two years. My coaching days came to an end with the birth of our identical twin girls, Cameron & Quinn and having 3 under 3 currently. 

    The past three years, I was the Department Chair of Social Studies and 8th Grade Team Lead. In my second year, I completed my Administrative Internship under Principal Rick Tubman and was named the Alt 1 (those I taught an abbreviated schedule and was the first alternative to the assistant principal). This July, I began my tenure as Assistant Principal at Queen Anne's County High School. I am excited to continue to learn from the leadership team, work hand-in-hand with the teachers here at QACHS, and continue to get to our students and community as the year progresses."
