Greetings!! It is a pleasure to be your student's teacher at Carey School! This is the beginning of my 20th year teaching at our school (my 22nd, overall), and I feel that it is a privilege and an honor to be here, working with your children. Before moving to Idaho in 1982, I was a resident of Pearl River, New York. I am a graduate of the State University of New York at Oneonta with a degree in Literature and a minor in Political Science. In 1990 I earned my secondary teaching degree in Language Arts and Social Studies from Boise State University.
I have been married for the last 29 years to Ginny Blakeslee Breen, and we live in Hailey. We have one son, Ryan, and two grandchildren, Vaughn and Madison, who are 5 and 4, respectively. Some of my hobbies include: gardening, mountain biking, skiing, reading, backpacking, white-water sports, music, and creative writing. I love living in Idaho, being close to the mountains, and breathing our fresh air.
I currently teach English, grades 9,10, and 11; Economics; World History; Multi-Media; Creative Writing; and Read 180.
It is a pleasure and honor to teach here at Carey High School! My personal goal is to inspire, engage, educate, and empower our students, every single day.
