About Me

My name is Nicholas Provenzano and I am a high school English Teacher. I have been teaching for 10 years and all of them have been at Grosse Pointe South. I have my Masters in Educational Technolgy from Central Michigan University and I am very excited to use what I learned with my students. I have taught Freshmen English in the past, but have spent the majority of my time teaching American Literature. I love to have student do projects in stead of taking multiple chioce tests. I think it really allows students to express what they have learned in their own way. I look forward to all of the great projects I know I will get from students this year. The more creative they are, the better.

I grew up in Detroit and Grosse Pointe and went to school at St. Clare of Monetfalco. Go Falcons! I have an older and younger brother who I love to hang out with during the weekends. I'm married and have a beautiful baby boy of my own. He is the most adorable baby in the world, so do not try to compete. I spend what little free time I have working on my website and writing reviews of education related products. You can find me at I use Twitter to communicate to students what assigments have been given each day and you can follow me at @MrProvenzano.

I also enjoy working in my garden and on my pond that I built all by myself! I like to game, but the baby cuts into most of my game time and he is such a Newb in COD. I'm a joky type of person that love literature and discussing the deeper meaning of things. I try to create a fun environement for students to work in and feel comfortable sharing their ideas. Please see me if you ever have questions or concerns with what is going on in class. I'm here to talk whenever you need me.

I'm excited to work with all of my students this year and look forward to the great times we are going to have.
