Welcome to English 7 Maroon
Please visit our Microsoft Teams Page for any and all class materials.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with all of you this year. Our focus this year will be on continuing to develop our skills as critical readers, writers, and thinkers by engaging with a variety of diverse texts and tasks. Our classroom will be an environment that cultivates and encourages deep thinking, collaboration, multiple perspectives, and celebrates our individual voices and experiences. We will strive to be Creative, Resilient, Mindful, and Spirited.
I have been teaching English since 2006, first in the Fayetteville-Manlius CSD outside Syracuse, and most recently in the Bloomfield CSD. I have taught all grade levels and disciplines from sixth-grade reading class to AP Literature for seniors, but I have a special fondness for the middle-grades years. Having spent the majority of my career at the seventh-grade level, I am excited to continue working with students in these critical and exciting years.
When not reading, writing, or teaching, I can be found with my wife chasing my two young, energetic daughters or spending as much time in nature as possible. Having grown up in the Lake George area, mountains and lakes are woven into my DNA.
