Why I teach

I had some great teachers/advisers/coaches in high school who really impacted my life in a positive way. My hope is that I can be a positive part of someone’s day and high school experience just like those teachers were for me.

Why I teach at Pius X

Pius X is big enough to offer a tremendous number of activities and opportunities for our students, while still holding onto the close-knit feeling of a smaller school. I am able to teach/sponsor/coach things that I’m passionate about, which makes each day enjoyable for me as well.
