My name is Steven Charlish and I am so excited to be joining the Forest Grove Team this year!
I have been a teacher in the county for the past ten years, and have been teaching in various places around the world for the past twenty!
I was born in England, just outside of London and then moved to the west of England to study education. Before coming to the United States in 2006 I had been teaching third through fifth grade at schools in the city of Bristol in the west of England. I was also lucky enough to teach in New Zealand and Nicaragua.
I graduated with honors from Bath Spa University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative English and Studies of Childhood with Qualified Teacher Status. Since then I have earned my Masters in Education from Shenandoah University, and my endorsement in gifted education. I am currently studying to earn my certificate in educational leadership. What can I say, I love learning!
Outside of school I am an avid football (soccer) and I am beginning to understand many American sports, such as baseball. I enjoy playing golf, traveling and generally anything that can help me be outside!
