Mr. Mark Lee Andrews

I am originally from White River Junction, Vermont and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Gordon CollegeI also hold a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Quinnipiac University, with concentrations in Secondary Education (6-12) and Social Studies.

 

I am in my fourteenth year in education and have been a part of the McGee's Crossroads Middle family for the past three. I have also worked in the Nash-Rocky Mount and Guilford County school systems. 

 

I have previously taught English and Social Studies for several years a private school in Seoul, South Korea. My experiences in South Korea provided invaluable historical and cultural insights, many of which I reference in classroom instruction. In addition, I had the opportunity to travel to many places including the Great Wall of China and Beijing, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Hiroshima and Tokyo in Japan, Cebu and Boracay in the Philippines, Tanah Lot in Bali, Ko Phi Phi and Ko Samui in Thailand, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Ha Long Bay and Phu Quoc in Vietnam, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

 

I have served as a volunteer for People to People Student Ambassadors. In my capacity as team leader, I chaperoned student groups traveling throughout Italy, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. People to People, a program started by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, is an international program that allows students to explore and learn about cultures and traditions, as well as visit famous historical sites.

 

I have also served as a volunteer in Haiti and in the Dominican Republic. While in Haiti, I worked to help rebuild the city of Port-Au-Prince following a devastating earthquake. My volunteer work in the Dominican Republic involved serving in a children's orphanage, an experience that inspired me to become an educator.

 

Outside of teaching, I have worked in Public Relations for the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League. I have many fond memories of my experience working in St. Paul, and I was able to gain many unique perspectives and insights into the game of hockey.

 

My wife, Courtney, who is also an educator, and I have been married for six years. We have two children, Tyler and Lila Paige. 

 

Having been raised in New England, I am a passionate, lifelong Boston Bruins, Red Sox, Celtics, and New England Patriots fan. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, taking trips to Florida, completing New York Times crossword puzzles, and spending time in the outdoors.
