About Ian

I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 26, 1990. I attended Cheltenham High School and graduated June 2008. In August of 2008 I began my undergraduate studies at Kutztown University with a major in education. After one semester, I had elected to return home, as I would then commute to Pennsylvania State University Abington Campus. I continued on with my focus on education and in the 2009-10 school-year, I worked as a volunteer teacher's aid at Cheltenham High School, where I assisted with the supervision of the science classrooms, coordinated biology lab sessions, as well as organized and graded various paperwork. In a couple more years, in December 2012, I graduated from Penn State with a bachelor's degree in Life Science.

My college career challenged me, and lead me to make the decision to push my body physically and mentally by backpacking along the Appalachian Trail. Starting on March 10, 2013, I began my journey on Springer Mountain in Georgia. My trip was unfortunately brought to
a halt after 2 ½ months, and had to retire from the long walk in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. I will return to attempt the Appalachian Trail thru-hike again when time permits.

In June of 2014, I began the next chapter of my life as a Teaching Resident in Philadelphia's Public School System. I found out about this opportunity through my friend who lives in Boston. He suggested I look into Boston's Teaching Residency Program, and the more I read - the more interested I became; however, I needed something closer. Upon doing my research and going through the application/selection process, I was accepted into Drexel University and Philadelphia's Teaching Residency program. At Drexel, I am working towards my Master's Degree in Education, and through Philadelphia Teacher Residency I worked at Roxborough High School. During my residency year, I was lead teacher of the Advanced Placement Biology, and am currently assisting with two tenth grade Biology 1.

This upcoming year, I will be joining a Charter School to teach ninth grade environmental science and tenth grade biology.


My undergraduate major was life science with a discipline in biology. My sub-discipline was in ecology and in my final year of undergraduate school I had worked with a professor of mine on two ecological projects. The first project involved surveying for migratory bird's nests and observing the various predation on the nests. The second project involved observation of hawk predation on various feeders around the greater Philadelphia area.
