It is exciting to begin a new challenge here at SPAEC. I have already enjoyed meeting and getting to know the amazing students and the impressive staff here, and I find it rewarding to help the students achieve their goals. While it is difficult in some ways to leave Regional High after 21 years, as SPAEC is not far away, it is fortunate that I am still able to interact quite regularly with my former students and staff. The proximity to Regional also allows for me to continue coaching football without any added obstacles. I am learning how important it is to have a school that offers alternative options for students with unique needs, and I am thrilled to be a part of it!
