Mr. Joseph D. Thedford

Hi, here is a little bit about me.
I was born and raised in Syracuse, NY.  I have a BA in Secondary Education, Social Studies and a lateral entry certification Elementary Education, K-5.  I also have my Masters in Science and Instructional Technology K-12.  
I am married to my best friend, Donna. We have two grown children, Meghan and Ryan. 
We love to travel the country by car.  This allows us to stop and see the country as it is and appreciate the variety of the natural wonders that make America unique and special.  When we travel we see historical sites, visit museums, and take hikes in state or national parks.  One of my hobbies is reading science fiction. I am a huge Star Wars and Star Trek fan.  My favorite comic super hero in the Marvel Universe is Spiderman, while in the DC Universe my favorite super hero is The Flash.    
We have one pet cat, Dash. Which fits him well because he is always dashing around the house chasing his shadow.
