Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Christopher Buffone
I was born and raised in Ashburn, graduating from Stone Bridge High School! For college, I attended and graduated from Christopher Newport University with a Bachelors in Business Administration with a Concentration in Accounting. Although I enjoyed accounting, my true passions are for teaching, for learning, and for exploring the Social Sciences. As such, I returned to college and earned a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University! Now I get to help others learn and explore the Social Sciences!
During my free time I enjoy biking. Much of my biking centers around riding up and down the W&OD trail but the D.C. metro area has many other great paths. When I am not biking, I tend to binge watch shows on Netflix and hang out with my friends, family, and dog!
As your child's Social Studies teacher, students will receive the skills necessary to help them continue to grow as an individual. I strive to help students develop their critical thinking and written skills by developing a classroom that is engaging and student centered. This entails providing students with the tools that will help them feel and be successful as life long learners!
Teaching is a passion of mine and I am fortunate enough to do something that I truly enjoy! Go TIMBERWOLVES!
