I believe that every student can achieve what they want if they work hard enough. Some students are more apt to learning with technology, getting their hands dirty, being visual, or being audio learners. The best teachers are those who use a variety of methods to reach their students. A great relationship is also a key to having students do their best.
I attended Utica College of Syracuse University. I majored in communication arts, which has helped create my “stage presence” in the classroom. I also minored in history, my favorite subject. I went back to school a year later to earn my masters degree in secondary education.
I taught world history for two years in a rural district in Central New York. I then worked at the Family Foundation School, a therapeutic boarding school for troubled kids. I taught US History, World History, and Government and Economics for 4 1/2 years. Last year, I moved to North Carolina and currently teach middle school history and science at the Lenoir County Learning Academy.
I was an Eagle Scout. When I was at the Family Foundation School, I was the scoutmaster. I played intramural floor hockey and volleyball in college. I was involved in Circle K in college as well.
