Mr. Steve Falconi

Language Arts Teacher

This will be my first year teaching at Palmer Ridge and I am thrilled to be a Bear. I am a graduate of Liberty High School, but try not to hold that against me. Prior to Palmer Ridge, I taught 9th and 12th grade English at D’Evelyn High School for two years, and I taught 10th and 12th grade English at Ralston Valley Senior High School for another two years. I graduated from Regis University with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience in 2012, and a Master’s degree in Secondary Education in 2015. As an undergraduate, I worked in the university writing center as the scientific writing and APA guru.  I hold licenses to teach both Secondary English and Science. Although much of my education is science-oriented, I have an incredible passion for reading and writing. I am fascinated by the evolution of literature throughout history and how social/political pressures are reflected in fiction. My goals as an English teacher are to help my students become more sophisticated readers, more polished writers, and more critical thinkers. Thank you and I look forward to a great semester!
