Mr. Mark Lee Andrews
I am originally from White River Junction, Vermont and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Gordon College. I 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 tenth year of teaching Social Studies in North Carolina and have been a part of the McGee's Crossroads Middle family for the past two. I have also worked in the Nash-Rocky Mount and Guilford County school systems.
I have previously taught English for several years a private school in Seoul, South Korea. While living in South Korea I had the opportunity to travel to many places and historic sites 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, and Hong Kong. My teaching experience in South Korea and extensive travel have provided invaluable historical and cultural insights.
I have also been a part of the People to People International, having chaperoned student groups traveling throughout Italy, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic.
Outside of teaching, I have worked in Public Relations for the Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League.
Having been raised in New England, I am a passionate, lifelong Boston Bruins, Red Sox, and New England Patriots fan. I enjoy spending time with my family, taking trips, reading non-fiction books, and completing New York Times Crossword puzzles.
