Graduate Support Officer
I retired from education in 2020 after 26 years. I worked at Bell Middle School in Chappaqua, New York first as a guidance counselor then as an administrator (AP). Prior to Chappaqua I worked as the Program Director for an alternative high school called Westprep. It was a school for dually diagnosed high school students who had substance abuse and psychiatric issues. I started my career as a social worker for Child Protective Services in Boston. As far as education I graduated from Boston College with a degree in psychology then received a Master's in Counseling from Manhattan College and my administrative certification from Teachers College.
I come from a family of educators. My father was a middle school principal. My sister is a current elementary school principal. Another one of my sisters is a middle school math teacher and a third teacher does work with ELL students in middle school and high school.
I have been married for twenty seven years to my wife, Michele and have two children, Michael (24) and Meghan (23). Michael graduated from BC and Meghan from University of New Hampshire. We raised our children in Sandy Hook, Ct.
After retiring from education Michele and I moved out to Martha's Vineyard for a year and ran a 40 unit hotel on the island. We currently live in Old Lyme, Ct. I enjoy all sports and doing outdoor activities with my wife. I also enjoy trying my hand at home improvement projects and learning how to do new things. I am thoroughly enjoying my time at Covenant so far and look forward to continuing to develop the Graduate Support Program.
