This will be my 13th year teaching elementary physical education, but my first year in New Lenox. I grew up in Manhattan, but I currently live in Channahon with my wife Liz and our three children: Ryan Abbey, & Luke. Ryan is beginning his freshman year of high school, Abbey will be starting 7th grade, and Luke will be in 4th grade. We spend a lot of time on the go attending basketball, football, and baseball games, going to wrestling meets, and attending band concerts. As a family, we enjoy being outdoors and active.
