World Language


Communication skills are vital, and in an increasingly interconnected world, the ability to communicate in multiple languages makes students more marketable to both colleges and business.

This is my first year teaching at Prospect and my tenth year overall.  I currently teach Spanish levels 1-3 and enjoy connecting with students who want to learn another language as well as about other cultures.  I am a high school graduate of Oyster River and continued my academics in Durham at UNH as an undergad (Spanish + International Affairs) and a grad student (Spanish).  I was fortunate enough to study abroad three times which ties in well with my love to travel.  Every year I try to visit a new place or country with old friends on top of going to Costa Rica with my wife and little boy to visit extended family, where I am slowly building a cabin.  In my free time I like to visit the beach, lakes, and mountains, or watch and play sports.  Hockey would be at the top of that list.

I've been working at Prospect Mountain High School for 14 years and currently teach French 1-4.  Prior to PMHS, I taught at Laconia High School for 5 years. In addition to teaching, I coach the golf team and advise the World Cultures Club. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. I have 2 wonderful children and in my free time I enjoy playing guitar, running, and playing hockey.
