Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 27th year at L.A. Ainger Middle School. I previously taught seven years in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I coached varsity football, wrestling and track for 15 years at Lemon Bay High School and seven years in those sports at Chartiers Valley High School in Pittsburgh. After several years on the sideline, I decided to get back into coaching and have led our Ainger Boys Track team to the County Middle School title three of the last four years.
I have also worked at the Boca Grande Community Center since 1995. I work for the Friends of Boca Grande Community Center as an Executive Assistant and the Coordinator of their teen group the "Boca Bunch". I also work for Lee County Parks & Recreation as a Recreation Specialist and Summer Camp Director.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Janine for 31 years. My kids, Trent (27) and Alannah (25) attended L.A. Ainger Middle School; as well as Lemon Bay High School and Vineland Elementary. Trent has his Masters from Youngstown State in Ohio and is currently the Coordinator for Residence Life for Staff Development and Programming at Ringling College of Art + Design in Sarasota. Alannah received her Masters at Flordia Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers in Mental Health Counseling and is employed as a counselor in Fort Myers.
