Teacher Bio Curriculum Homework

This is my 15th year of teaching, and my 3nd year at MIMS. My first year I was the 7th grade ELA teacher, but this year I'll be teaching 8th grade for the 2nd time. 

I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis for my undergraduate degree, and received my Master's degree from the University of St. Thomas. 

Outside of school (I know, shocking that a teacher does things outside of school) I enjoy movies, reading, video games, and being a father to my two kids. 

If you would like to contact me, please email me at marcusl@iecmail.net
