Hey! My name is Eric and I am one of Springboard’s Teen Engagement Specialists. I spent my high school years at Stevenson and was President of my USY chapter when we won chapter of the year (Humble Brag). I am a big sports fan and watch any game on TV, especially the World Champion Boston Red Sox. I also enjoy traveling, working out, and eating as much as I can while binge watching the office on Netflix.  

I went to the University of Hartford where I studied Integrated Elementary and Special Education. I recently returned to the Chicagoland area after spending seven years in Hartford, Connecticut. While there, I taught third grade and worked with students in the special education department. Additionally, I taught cooking (let me know if you need a recipe!) and helped develop new, exciting classes for Jewish teens at the JT Connect (Jewish Teen Learning Connections). 

I’ve traveled all around the world as a staff member with BBYO Passport visiting Costa Rica, Italy, Slovenia and Israel.  

What are your interests? Let’s get coffee (preferably Dunkin’... It’s a New England thing) and talk about the great programs in the Chicagoland area that you can be a part of!
