Principal

I was born in Medina, Ohio but I my family moved down here when I was in Kindergarten so I grew up right here in Charlotte County. I went to Peace River Elementary, Port Charlotte Junior High and Port Charlotte High School. I went to college at Florida State University and came back here to teach. I taught mostly Math for 13 years before moving over into Administration and have been the principal here since 2014. I have two wonderful children that went through Charlotte County Public Schools and then on to college. I love working here at Punta Gorda Middle because it is exciting and different every day.

Asst. Principal

I earned my Ph.D. in American Literature from The Ohio State University in 1998 and my first career was as a tenured academic, teaching and doing administrative work at the university level through 2015.  Following the birth of my first child, Adelise, my wife and I decided to move closer to both of our families in SW Florida.  I have worked at Charlotte High for the last three years teaching senior English and D.E. humanities classes. When I am not working, I kayak fish, cook, play guitar and head to the beach.  I finished my M.Ed. in educational leadership last year through the University of West Florida, and I am very excited to be joining the faculty, admin and staff at Punta Gorda Middle School.

In 1998, I moved from Vermont to Charlotte County and began attending Port Charlotte High School. After finishing high school, I completed my Bachelor of Science degree at Florida Atlantic University. I began my teaching career teaching middle school science in Tampa, Florida. However, as a proud graduate of Charlotte County Public Schools, I could not resist returning to the area, and I came back in 2006 to teach science at Port Charlotte High School. After teaching for several years, I entered graduate school to complete my M.Ed. in educational leadership. In 2012, I became an administrator at Port Charlotte High School. Following the birth of my daughter in 2018, I decided to transfer to Punta Gorda Middle, and I am so excited to be a member of the Eagle family.
