About Mike

Hi! I’m a father of two amazing boys and the husband of a phenomenal math teacher. I have been a social studies teacher in the Owen J. Roberts School District since 2004. When I’m not hanging out with my family or working you can usually find me doing something for the Owen J. Roberts High School wrestling team as I’ve been a coach there since 2005.

I also host the Six Tips and Tricks from the TOSA podcast should you be interested in hearing some of my thoughts on educational technology & the suggestions I’ve collected for the staff in my building.
