I am looking forward to working with your son/daughter this school year. This is my 23rd year teaching at Edwardsburg Public Schools. My first five years were spent at the Chicago Road Building, teaching Alternative Education. I’m excited about teaching Economics and Civics. At the beginning of every school year, I like to share some professional and personal information about myself with the parents and students.
I was born and raised just outside of Detroit, Michigan. After several childhood moves, I ended up in South Bend, Indiana and graduated from South Bend LaSalle High School. I attended Huntington University, in Huntington Indiana, and received my B.S. in Psychology and Secondary Education with minors in Economics, Sociology, and Political Science. I have my master’s degree in education from Marygrove College in Detroit.
My wife Aimee (Alfano) attended Huntington University also. She is a graduate of Edwardsburg High School (Class of 89). We have three beautiful children: Emily, Josh, and Adam. Aimee brought me to Edwardsburg over 25 years ago. Edwardsburg is now home.
Professionally, I am committed to the Edwardsburg High School administration, faculty, students, and parents. My mission is to reach every student on an individual basis. Each one of my students will be treated with a very high level of respect. I will inspire students to learn material defined by the school board in the curriculum guidelines. I will also assist my students in achieving their own personal goals during and after their high school careers. Lastly, I want my students to know that they have support from family members, friends, and teachers to guide them throughout their life.
I vow to do my absolute best in the classroom for your son/daughter. I am excited about upcoming school year. I am always available to talk if you have any questions or concerns dealing with your son/daughter. My e-mail address
I welcome the opportunity to meet you at various school functions throughout the year. In closing, I want you to know that your continued support is very important to me. This year is going to be a great year for your child.
