I was born and grew up in Spencer New York. I have a BS. degree in Early Childhood from Elmira collage. I also have an AAS. degree in Fire Technology from TC3. When I worked at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tioga County, I did the Richford summer school teaching about how to use the food guide pyramid and food safety. I have been an active member of the Spencer Fire Department for 40 years. I have been an assistant chief, water supply officer, chaplain, and trustee for the last 7 years. I feel that the Lord want me to help people and I like working with students. That is why I like to teach at North Spencer Christian Academy.
