About Mr. Davies
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! Since this is my second year with Hudson City Schools, I am happy to report that I am still excited about, and love, teaching here. The students and staff that I have had the pleasure of working with have made an enduring impression on me, helping to shape my ongoing approach to teaching and learning. This year I will be working as an intervention specialist, co-teaching English 11- American Literature with Ms. Amanda Wasserman and providing study and organization skills support in Study Strategies. I eagerly anticipate getting to know all of my new students, reconnecting with returning students and working with all of their families throughout the year. Please check out my other pages for additional information on specific classes.
A little bit about myself:
I have been an Ohio resident my entire life. Growing up in northeast Ohio has given me a love for lake-enhanced weather (especially in the winter) and a high patience level for road construction. I have a tremendous appreciation for humor and not only enjoy a good laugh, but love to bring laughter to others. Within the classroom, humor has been a great tool for me in diffusing stressful situations as well as provided opportunities to respectfully model that everyone makes mistakes and it's okay to laugh at yourself. Outside of school, my priorities fall into two categories- I am very active at my church, serving within children's and adult ministries, and my family! My wife (Danielle) and I have been married for 15 years and have been blessed with 4 kids, ages 13, 11, 7, and 6! They keep us going in all directions and are the source of much joy.
My Educational Background:
I graduated from Euclid Senior High School in 1998. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education from Cedarville University in 2002. I earned my Intervention Specialist license from Notre Dame College in 2007. In 2013 I completed my Master of Education degree from Liberty University. Additionally, I seek out professional development courses that align with my content area / intervention objectives.
