He attended Saint Margaret’s Grade School, Red Bank Catholic High, Montclair State (BA), Newark State (MA), Univ. of Wyoming (6 year Level), NSF Institute, and RUTGERS-The State University (ED.D.). He began teaching in 1956 in Manasquan ( eighth grade science and math). He spent two years on active service in US Army Chemical Corps (one year at Seventh Army HQ, Stuttgart, Germany). He returned to Manasquan Elementary School in 1958 and moved to Manasquan High School in 1959 (science).
