This is my eighth year as Head of School at Saint Columbkille Partnership School. These past years have been the most rewarding years of my professional life. I have never worked at a school with so many wonderful supportive families, energetic and creative children, and talented teachers.
I myself am a product of Catholic Schools having attended Saint Madeline Elementary School and Saint James High School in the Philadelphia area. I received my Bachelors degree in Theology and Philosophy from Saint Francis de Sales College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I spent a year of graduate studies in Theology at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. After moving to the Boston Area, I attained my Master’s degree in School Administration from Emmanuel College and later on in life earned a doctorate degree from Boston College.
I worked as a teacher in Saint Rose High School in Chelsea, Arlington Catholic High School in Arlington and at Fontbonne Academy in Milton. My school administration career began at Fontbonne Academy where I served as the Vice-Principal for Student Concerns. In 1995, I was the founding principal at Monsignor Haddad Middle School in Needham where I worked for ten years. Prior to my tenure at Saint Columbkille, I was the Academic Vice Principal at Boston College High School.
I have a love for the outdoors and when I can bike, hike and kayak. I am married to the love of my life, Susan, who also has dedicated her life serving children in Catholic schools. My son Eric is currently a social studies teacher at BC High and my daughter teaches a grade four classroom at the Brook Charter School.
I thank God everyday for bringing me to Saint Columbkille Partnership School where I discovered everything is possible and where Faith, Hope, and Love abound.
