"People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care" - Theodore Roosevelt


I am born first generation Cuban American and I have 2 sisters, Lisa and Alexis. I live with my wife (Laura) and 2 children (Grace 10 yrs old and Cooper 7 yrs old) . When I'm not in school I am a loyal and passionate sports fan and I enjoy spending time with friends and family. My favorite teams are the NY Yankees, the Miami Dolphins, the Boston Celtics, the Boston Bruins and United States Soccer (both men and women). I also enjoy playing competitive darts and have been a member of the Greater Hartford Dart League for the last 15 yrs. I also enjoy coaching my son's soccer team, cheering on my daughter's travel soccer team, and vacationing with my family during the summer. I am also a huge music fan of many different genres and enjoy going to concerts. I am blessed and fortunate to work at Smith with so many wonderful students, families and teachers.
