This year, I begin my 25th year teaching and coaching at Williston. In addition to teaching English and coaching the varsity baseball team, I am the 9th Grade Dean, run the 9th Grade Program with Allison Marsland, and will be the dorm head of the newly-constructed dorm. My wife Sarah is the Chair of the English Department and run the Writing Center. My children (Will ’22 and Anna ’24) will be both be Williston students, so it is definitely a family affair!


BA Amherst College 1994; MA Middlebury College 2002; MEd Columbia University 2007

Fun Fact: Besides Greg Tuleja (Girls’ Cross Country), I have the longest streak of consecutive seasons coaching a varsity sport at Williston.
