Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Mead

Thanks for visiting my website,
This is my ninth year teaching at New Paltz Middle School.  I am extremely excited about beginning and cannot wait for the first day of school, as well as each day after that.
I grew up in a small town in the Catskill Mountains called Arkville.  I love soccer and my favorite team is Arsenal FC (you can make fun of them, since I do as well).  I also love the outdoors.  Hiking, camping, arborist work, hunting, and all other aspects of the forest are important parts of my life.  I enjoy cabinet making as well and working with wood in any way, from a standing tree to a finished table.  Furthermore, one of my favorite activities is simply helping other people.
To the left is a selfie I took at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington DC with eighth grade a few years ago.  I love doing all of the field trips with the school.
Keeping an open line of communication between myself and all parents is extremely important to me.  Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. I look forward to hearing from you!
