Mr. Mortimer's Bio:
I grew up in Evergreen, Colorado, a small mountain community west of Denver. After completing a B.A. in English at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, I taught high school English and Spanish and coached speech and debate at Greeley Central High School for six years. I earned an M.A. and a Ph.D. in English at The Ohio State University, where I taught college writing courses. Rather than pursue a career in higher education, my wife and I moved to Stevensville in the summer of 2000. After nine years in the business world, I decided to return to teaching. I had the good fortune to do a lot of substitute teaching here at Corvallis Middle School; the experience got me hooked on working with middle school kids. I am delighted about this opportunity to work with the exceptional students and staff at CMS.
