quotMr Macquot McFatridge STEM Coordinator
Welcome to Mr. Mac's STEM Classes!
All Grades: STEM Core X Rotation
I moved to Augusta, GA from Johnson City, TN after graduating from high school. I worked as an EMT/Paramedic for 17 years, was the Lead Pastor for a Jefferson County church from 2000-2006. Shortly after that I decided to pursue my degree in Early Childhood Education.
I graduated with honors from Augusta State University, Phi Kappa Phi, as well as Summa Cum Laude; (December 2010) and started January 2011 off by working with "Special Needs" students. That summer I was offered a position at NHE to begin teaching Pre-K. I've had the honor of teaching 1st, 4th, and 5th grade.
I am a huge techie! I love helping students bring a new element into the classroom using technology and having them make it their own.. The introduction of tablets and personal devices has taken technology from just a tool to something that can become an extension of a student and their learning!
Not only am I working on becoming a Google Certified Teacher....I am also working on my masters degree in Instructional Technology as well as an endorsement in Gifted Education. SO, if I ask your student to work hard, I am not just talking...I am trying to give them an example of how to!
My wife is a CPA. We have 3 wonderful children. My oldest daughter is married and has given me my greatest treasure yet, my two granddaughters. I also have my dog Boz who has been a great addition to our family. My daughter wants to get an alligator, but I have forbidden it. I also have plans to get a few chickens to produce some range free eggs! :)
I am so privileged to be teaching at North Harlem, the best elementary school in the county!
