Education has been my life. Being a teacher and curriculum leader of the science department, I have always strived to put the students’ success first. My concerns have been discovery of what each of my students need to flourish in today’s world, whether that’s trade schools, military, post- secondary is education or work force.
A huge strength of Avella school district is its small class size for more individualized instruction. I’m also very proud of our strong administration team. We moved to this district when my wife and I were expecting our first child, and both of our children have always lived in this district because we want them to have the best education they can get. Our small class sizes and a staff that works well together is integral to quality education. While our school is always keeping up to date with new technology, improvement can always be achieved in continuing to look for advances in technology at all levels.
