    Mr. Charlish

     

    My name is Steven Charlish and I am so very excited to be teaching FUTURA at Arcola again this year.

    I have been a teacher in the county for the past twelve years, and have been teaching in various places around the world for the past twenty-something! This is my third year of teaching FUTURA.

    I was born in England, just outside of London and then moved to the west of England to study education.  Before coming to the United States in 2006, I had been teaching third through fifth grade at schools in the city of Bristol, in the west of England. I was also lucky enough to teach in New Zealand and Nicaragua.

    I graduated with honors from Bath Spa University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative English and Studies of Childhood with Qualified Teacher Status. Since then I have earned my Masters in Education from Shenandoah University, my Virginia endorsement in gifted education and my Professional Certificate in Educational Leadership and Administration.

    Outside of school, I am an avid football (soccer) fan, Tottenham Hotspur to be precise, and I enjoy many American sports, such as football (Redskins) and baseball (Nats). I love playing golf, travelling and generally anything that can help me be outside!

    I am thoroughly looking forward to this upcoming school year.
