I Took a Chance...

I took a chance, I rolled the dice, I gambled...

As much as I see it (and so does my wife) as a fault of mine, I am a person that enjoys and embraces CHANGE! I like to try new things. I get excited when something new comes out, especially if it is something that I can use in my daily life. Sometimes, however, taking a chance and making the change that you want is not always the best thing for you in the long run. 

It is because of my desire for change that I took a chance and decided to leave the comfort of my classroom to become a Professional Development Coordinator at another school district in August of 2015. After a short time in this position, I came to the realization that, while this job is a fantastic opportunity for growth, it is not where I want to be right now. Don't get me wrong, I'm completing my MA in Educational Leadership and I still have aspirations of becoming a school leader but for now...

I'm a TEACHER! I knew I wanted to teach (or play for the Yankees) since I was 12 years old! I absolutely love working with and interacting with students, seeing the pride in a student when they accomplish a task that they never expected to complete and especially trying new and exciting things in my classroom

It is because of my passion for teaching, that I simply could not shake the fact that I NEEDED to be back in the classroom. Luckily, I get that opportunity once again. 

Starting January 4th 2016, I get another chance to rock the classroom, teaching 7th/8th grade Social Studies. Follow my students' journey as we learn, grow, innovate and change the world together - @MrBiancoHPSD.  

I can't wait to be back doing what I absolutely love to do! 

I'm a Spartan!
