Welcome to NJROTC!

This website is for the cadets enrolled in Naval Science 1. It contains cadet required forms needed by each cadet, NS1 (Naval Science First Year) syllabus, curriculum, grading policy, assignments, textbooks, and links to resources helpful to the first year student.  Please feel free to email me any time with questions or concerns.

For NJROTC unit information regarding unit mission, staff, events and event dates, photos and parent support group information see the NJROTC page under academics.

My Info: I began teaching NJROTC at Chaparral High School during the 2012-2013 year after retiring from the U.S. Navy after 20 years of service. Since my first year I am proud to say that our unit has been a Distinguished Unit for the past 6 years. I also balance my time here at the school as one of the varsity softball assistant coaches. Both of my daughters went to Chaparral with my oldest being part of NJROTC during her four years at high school. They both graduated and have since moved on to college.  I can say that I sincerely enjoy coming to work each day to mentor, lead, and teach our cadets in the unit. It is both an honor and a privilege to be involved in the development of our cadets within the program watching them grow and take on leadership positions both in the classroom and within the school.
