My name is Marc LaPierre. I taught at Orchard Hills School for twelve years and will be starting my 3rd year here at Mathewson. I have been married for 29 years and have four adult children, Nicole who is 28, Rebecca 24, Danielle 22, and Marc jr 20. Prior to becoming a teacher I worked as a congressional staff associate. I also worked in sales for a international courier company, managed a supermarket for 14 years and owned and operated my own landscaping business. In my spare time I like to read, garden, and paint landscapes. I'm currently back to school myself as I pursue a 6th year degree. I played the violin for 25 years and enjoy listening to classical music. My favorite sport is baseball and my favorite team is the New York Mets. I love learning and being in a school environment. I enjoy challenging students to reach their maximum potential. Look forward to seeing you on the 28th.
