I grew up in Brookline, Massachusetts where I graduated from Brookline High School.  I got my undergraduate degree at Brandeis University where I studied History, Psychology and Education.  I went on to get my M.A.T. in High School Social Studies at Simmons College.  The 2014-2015 school year will be my fifteenth year teaching High School and my 12th year at Norwood High School.  In my time at NHS I have coached swimming and am currently the faculty adviser for both the Environmental Youth Coalition (E.Y.C.) and the National Honors Society.  I currently teach Freshman World History (CP2 and Honors) and A.P. Psychology. Personally I am married and have two children, Taylor (6) and Matthew (4).
