Mr. S. Morisani, Jr.
I have been a teacher since 1999, where I began my career in New York (Floral Park Memorial HS). I have taught in Alabama since 2001 and have been at Fairhope since 2006.
I have taught Prealgebra, Algebra 1, Freshman Math Seminar, Geometry, Algebra 2, Algebra 2/Trigonometry, Algebra 3, Algebra 3/Statistics, AP Computer Science Principles, AP Computer Science A, and Algebraic Connections. I have taught at all different levels--AP, Pre-AP, Inclusion, and Standard Pace. I am an Alabama DOE ACCESS Online Instructor as well.
In other years, I have been a JH Baseball Coach, a Varsity XC Coach, a JV Girls Soccer Coach, and a Varsity Girls Soccer Coach. I have also been a Key Club supervisor and a Ping Pong Club moderator.
In my spare time I like to run distance (up to and including half marathons...I'm only half crazy!), read, coach in a youth soccer academy for a local soccer club (Gulf Coast Rangers), referee USSF youth soccer matches, cook Italian style food, and study the Italian language.
My wife is also a mathematics instructor who holds a Master's Degree in Mathematics. She teaches part-time at Coastal Community College in Fairhope.
I am originally from Rhode Island.
My wife and I have seven children aged 2 - 13. Yes, a large family makes for a very interesting day, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
