Mr. Mark Stiffler
I am originally from Monroeville, PA which is about 15 miles outside of Pittsburgh. Yes, I am a huge Steeler Fan. (Sorry Baltimore and Cleveland parents) I attended high school at Gateway Senior High in Monroeville and played football, wrestled, and threw shot put, discus, and javelin on the track team. After graduating from high school, I was accepted in the United States Naval Academy, where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Oceanography. Upon graduation I accepted a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. I served as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer during my career. After 20 years and many duty stations across the globe, I decided to change career paths. I retired from the Marine Corps as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2016. I completed a teacher certification program called Teacher Ready at the University of West Florida. In 2016 I was hired to teach at Hunters Creek Middle School.
This is my sixth year teaching. I have taught 7th grade Math and Science and 8th grade Math and Science as well as Math 1.
I also coach the Hunters Creek Wrestling Team and Boys Soccer Team.
