In depth knowledge of baseball, teaching, teaching social studies, educational leadership knowledge, being the 'Papa Bear' in "Goldilocks has Tea with the Bear Family" (a production his 3 year old stars in in the family living room), never losing a remote...to anything.
Baseball, education, humor, family, parenting, raising daughters, being a (slightly) better than mediocre husband, drinking, and writing.
Christopher attended St. Peter's University from 2004 - 2009 on a full baseball scholarship. While he attended the university, he pursued a double major in Elementary Education and American Studies. He was a four-year starter and two-time captain of the University's Division I baseball team, where he twice earned Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference player of the week honors. Christopher graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in teaching and certification as an educator of elementary school, kindergarten to fifth grade with middle school social studies certification. He is a certified teacher in the state of New Jersey.
After being a middle school social studies teacher for five years, Christopher decided to pursue an administrative degree. Upon completion of an accelerated graduate school program, Christopher was able to attain credentials in the state of New Jersey allowing him to become a school superintendent, school principal, and supervisor. This rigorous course entailed 36 credits within 15 months in both classroom and online formats. Christopher completed the program with a 3.7 grade point average.
Christopher was paid a wage of $40/hour for 20 hours to write a new curriculum for middle school students within Secaucus School District. Curriculum needed to meet the New Jersey State Department of Education Student Learning Standards in Social Studies, Common Core State Standards, as well as the criteria of existing resources within the school district and those that were available within the district budget. Curriculum was designed for a US History II course.
During the winter of 2013, Christopher wrote a short script for a video pitch that was accepted by a humor-themed website. The video was never shot, but entering the submission gave Christopher experience in pitching ideas into a distinct format. The script itself is an early representation of Christopher's humor, although rudimentary in style, it does show comedic timing.
