Welcome to Mr. Carpenter's web page.
I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and grew up there until moving to St. Louis in 2011. I have been teaching Social Studies in middle and high school since 2005. I have a BA in Secondary Education with an emphasis in History from Arizona State University. I am currently working towards a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language at Webster University. This is my 7th year teaching in SLPS and my 4th year at NCNAA.
I am a firm believer that students excel in an environment that they feel comfortable in. I strive to create a welcoming atmosphere where students feel safe to take risks and learn at their own pace.
