New to Belleview High this year, I've been teaching English and Social Studies for 18 years. Originally from New York in the place where Washington Irving set "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". Spent teen years across the street from the Hyde Park home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the Culinary Institute of America. I later would move upstate and end up where Irving set "Rip Van Winkle". After finishing cooking school, I moved to Florida as a young adult and returned to school attending the University of Florida from '94-'96.
