Rick earned a bachelor’s degree in adolescent education/social studies from Fredonia State University in New York. He has a master’s degree in adolescent education from Oneonta State College, also in New York. He earned a certificate of advanced studies in educational leadership from Binghamton University in New York.
He was a middle and high school teacher in upstate New York for eight years before coming to Charlotte. He completed his principal residency at Albemarle Road Elementary through New Leaders and spent three years as an assistant principal at Shamrock Gardens Elementary. In all, he has been in education for 14 years, two of those as a school principal.
His educational philosophy is this: No significant learning will take place without strong relationships between the student, teacher and family. Our role as a school is to build, engage, and enhance these relationships. With these relationships in place, we must provide unique learning experiences that allow students to create authentic representations of their learning and share them with a diverse audience.
He is also the proud father of a son, Lincoln, who will be a CMS kindergartner next year!
“Everybody wants to be more focused but I think in the end I don't know how many different task managers or to-do list apps that I've downloaded or tried. In the end it's not about the app, it's about the actual habits. You've got to build the habits and that's what I'm trying to do. How do I build those habits versus how do I find the tool that's going to fix it all because there's not a tool that's going to solve it.”

School leaders know that productive student talk drives student learning, but the average teacher talks 75% of class time! TeachFX is changing that with a "Fitbit for teachers" that automatically measures student engagement and gives teachers feedback about what they could do differently.
