    Willkommen to German! This will be my eighteenth year teaching German at Upper Merion. I began teaching after graduating with a B.A. in German studies from Dickinson College.  While at Dickinson, I spent 1/2 my junior year studying in at the University of Bremen in Germany.  I received my M.A. in Educational Leadership from Immaculata University. Aside from teaching German, I am happy to be the assistant Advisor for Student Council and advisor for the German club.  I am very excited for this school year!

    Willkommen zurück!  I hope everyone had a nice and restful summer.  I had a fun and travel filled summer with my family.  We spent a week in Ocean City, NJ, as well as a week in Sea Isle, NJ- where Jackson and Kyle loved playing in the water and enjoyed rides on the boardwalk.  My wife and I took a trip to the Finger Lakes in N.Y. for our anniversary.  We also went to Disney World for the first time with our boys - it was absolutely amazing!  The boys had an incredible time and we really enjoyed some Disney Magic.   It was good summer to recharge and I am excited to start this upcoming school year!
