About Jon

As a recent graduate of St. Lawrence University, I am seeking opportunities to share my education with students in the North Country. I majored in English and Environmental Studies, with aptitudes in composition, grammar, literature, ecology, and some biology. I graduated second in my class at St. Lawrence, an achievement built upon solid study habits and, more importantly, in-class habits.

I am a enthusiastic instructor, and I like to teach in many different environments, interacting with different demographics. I was a cub scout leader for four years (interacting with boys from the ages of 6-12), and I was a mountain bike instructor this past summer in the Rocky Mountains of New Mexico, interacting with youth from the ages of 14-18. Prior to these two experiences, I was given the opportunity to student teach for a month at a boarding school in Lake Placid, developing a poetry unit for 9th and 11th grade English classes.

Possibly my most professional teaching opportunity, I was employed at St. Lawrence University for a academic year as a GIS Technician. I interacted with university students on a daily basis, assisting them with GIS related projects and assignments. I helped with class lectures, and even developed and taught several classes. This position allowed me to see what is expected of students from a faculty perspective, an insight that would be valuable to up and coming college students.

Aside from my teaching proclivities, I have an abundance of skills and interests. I am currently the lead guitarist in a local blues-rock band, a bicycle mechanic, a carpenter, and an occasional photojournalist. I love the outdoors intensely, pursuing almost every fresh air activity from hunting to mountain biking to hiking.

I'm a young North Country resident, and I am here to help!
