I am a Disney fanatic!! For as long as there have been those "royal" blue spires from Cinderella's Castle towering over Fantasyland, I have been a fan of all things Disney; particularly the theme parks, animated films, and collectible figurines. I have been an avid Disney collector for over 35 years, and I have been to Walt Disney World a few dozen times. I even went so far as to submit drawings to Walt Disney World as a child in hopes of becoming a Disney animator. Alas, Ollie Johnston I shall never be!
I am a former college football player for Boston College who now teaches 5th grade in Massachusetts. My goal as a teacher is to encourage each of my students to embrace their passion, whatever it may be, and to follow it as far as they can. I also coach youth soccer, basketball, softball, and when time permits, football.
I live for creating memorable times with my family and good friends, and I look forward to helping you do the same here at Walt Disney World!
About My Family
I live in a quiet suburb just west of Boston. I enjoy each day to the fullest with my two gorgeous daughters (my gifts)! My girls are healthy, intelligent, athletic, and most importantly, kind hearted. They are both into soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming, and lacrosse. Neither one of them are a "girly girl" nor a "tomboy"-they prefer to be called simply "athletic girls". They have also been known to send their male cousins for a tumble during backyard football games, which just makes Dad smile. Fortunately, my girls share the same passion for all things Disney as I do, and we never have to discuss where we want to go on vacation...The answer is always the same!
About My Disney Experience
Since my first hug from Pluto at the entrance to Main Street USA in the early 70s, I have continually morphed back into that same 7 year-old child each time I enter the Magic Kingdom! I still stand breathless whenever I catch my first glimpse of Cinderella's Castle from Town Square, no matter how many times I have seen it. And who doesn't well up just a bit, or maybe even a lot, whenever Jiminy Cricket's voice narrates the start of a fireworks display or a parade? All things Disney have always meant something special to me; Walt Disney World in particular. I have experienced its grandeur as a child, young adult, as one half of a couple, as part of a large family gathering, and most importantly, as a Dad! To me, there is no oher place on Earth that can extract so many emotions at one time from an individual. Let me help you to maximize these feelings of anticipation, excitement, and enjoyment! It will be my pleasure!!
