About our Guest
I currently teach 8th Grade math at Tyrone Area Middle School in Tyrone, Pennsylvania.  This is my 14th year of teaching.  Throughout my career, I have taught anywhere from pre-algebra up through dual-enrollment Calculus.  I am married and have 3 stepsons.  We enjoy doing anything outside, including spending time on our boat on the lake.  We also love camping, hiking, and kayaking – especially with our dog Bear and our newest puppy Grizzly.
