Dear BHMS Families,
I am thrilled to be starting my third year at Bunker Hill Middle School. In my two years at Bunker Hill, I have learned that Bunker Hill has some of the best educators in the business. I admire our staff's drive to help our students grow not just in academic areas, but social and emotional areas as well. Our staff here at Bunker Hill inspires me daily and has helped me grow as an educator.
I would like the opportunity to tell you how I found myself in education. My journey towards a life committed to the field of education began with my sixth-grade teacher, Mr. Brubaker. My first memories of Mr. Brubaker are as a 1st grader at Clara Barton Elementary School in Cherry Hill, NJ. Every time Mr. Brubaker would walk by students in the hallway, he would put out his hand for all the kids to give him a low-five. As a young student, I thought this was the coolest thing in the world. As I went through school, I would always find myself walking by Mr. Brubaker’s class. I would often see his kids dressed up like Roman citizens or exploring the school grounds for various lessons. As a sixth grader, I had the honor of being one of Mr. Brubaker’s students. Every day Mr. Brubaker made math, science, english, and history come alive for all his students. I enjoyed his class so much that at the end of sixth grade, I vowed to become a teacher just like him. While there were times I thought my goal of becoming an educator was unattainable, I thought of Mr. Brubaker. I thought of how he made me feel. I thought about how he taught me not just about history, but about life. I wanted to become someone else’s Mr. Brubaker.
In 2004, I graduated from LaSalle University with a BA in Secondary Education and Social Studies. I taught one year at Cherry Hill West before I found my home at Washington Township High School. I spent a total of 12 unforgettable years at the high school. At the high school, I was blessed to be able to work with some of the greatest students, teachers, and administrators in our area! While working at the high school, I earned a MS in Educational Leadership at St. Joseph’s University and an Ed.D. at Nova Southeastern University. In 2013, I became principal at a summer school based in Hammonton, NJ. At the school, I had the opportunity to work with a diverse student body from Pre-K to eleventh grade.
I currently reside in Washington Township with my wife (who taught at WTHS for 8 years) and our three children MariaRose, Ariana, and Joey. MariaRose currently attends Whitman and Ariana and Joey will attend there as well in the near future. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, going to the beach, and watching the Birds.
As the Assistant Principal at Bunker Hill, it is my primary goal to assist the children at BHMS not only to become the best students possible, but the best human beings. If there is ever anything I can do to better assist in that endeavor, please do not hesitate to contact me.
