School Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am extremely excited about the opportunity to work with so many of you this year in either Social Studies or Science. As a Co-Teacher, I get the chance to work with differnt teachers and students throughut the day to help ensure each child gets the benefits of great instruction, an engaging atmosphere, peer collaboration, and much more.
I have been at OMS for the last four years, teaching everything from Social Studies to Langaugae Arts to Science. I have been blessed to work with gen ed and special education students in all three grade levels. For the 208-19 school year, I partner with Mr. Nello (8th grade social studies), Mrs. Wright (8th grade Social Studies), Mrs. Dobbs (8th grade Science), and Mrs. Stowers (8th grade Science).
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Priti, for 23 years. We are blessed to have three boys who are all at different stages of life (College, High School, Middle School). I like to spend the bulk of my "free" time working with kids through athletics. I am currently the OMS Wrestling Coach and assistant football coach. My wife and I also took the opportunity of starting our own foundation, the Raise Me Up Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting and elevating the quality of life for the children in our community. Whether it is through the "Adopt A Teacher Campaign," the "Darkness to Light Campaign," or supporting the foster children within our community, my goal has and will always be to become a resource of love and support for all children.
