I began my working career as a Mechanical Engineer out of Union College. Feeling the need to connect more with the community in which I work and live, I transitioned to teaching in 2004. I have been a teacher at Ballston Spa High School since 2005. In 2010, I began working with a team of teachers from Ballston Spa High School to organize and develop the Clean Technologies and Sustainable Industries Early College High School (ECHS) at TEC-SMART. Since 2011, I have instructed both juniors and freshmen in this program.
Prior to 2011, I taught High School Regents Algebra and Geometry.
