Welcome to my School Wires page.
The 8th grade Social Studies Department is introducing our students to "D2L", which is the classroom management system that your kids will be using with their high school teachers next year. All of my information is available on my D2L page. To access that page, simply copy and paste the following website into your browser -- you will need to use your child's OJR network username and password once you get there. https://ojrsd.desire2learn.com/d2l/login
I am a proud 1991 graduate of OJR, so I am very familiar with the demographics of this district. I graduated from West Chester University with a BS in Education (Social Studies concentration) and began teaching in the high school in the 1999-2000 school year. After two years in the high school, I have spent the last 14 years in the middle school teaching 8th grade American history, where I also serve as the middle school department chair for Social Studies. My wife Adria teaches 3rd grade in West Vincent, and I also have two amazing daughters that keep me busy. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing soccer, playing poker, and traveling. I look forward to working with you in the coming year!
