Greetings from Denton Avenue Elementary School
Dear Denton Avenue Families,
I hope that you are enjoying the summer and getting some well-deserved rest and relaxation after such a challenging year. I am very excited to meet each of you and to become a part of the Herricks community.
My wife Debbie, my two boys, Jake and Matthew, and I have spent most of the summer on college tours and at baseball tournaments. Jake will be a Senior this year and Matthew is beginning 7th grade and starting Middle School.
Prior to accepting the position at Denton Avenue, I was in the Mineola School District for 21 years. I taught sixth grade Math, Science and Social Studies for 16 years. For the past five years I was the assistant principal at Jackson Avenue Elementary School.
My job is to inspire and empower students, ensuring that each child has the opportunity to be creative and develop his/her ability to think critically. It is my hope that we will work collaboratively so that our children can be challenged and ultimately contribute positively in our society.
