Mark Nadobny

Really brief, I've been married since 1994 and have two kiddos. I'm an 8th Grade Social Studies teacher at Moultrie Middle School and also an adjunct instructor of history at Trident Technical College. Every Thursday afternoon, from 3:30 - 4:30, I will be facilitating a Chess Club in my classroom (C-110) for any student interested in learning and/or playing chess.

I've earned undergraduate degrees from New York State University (BA) and the University of Cincinnati (BS). I also earned my masters degree from the University of Northern Kentucky (MA). I have been Nationally Board Certified since 2008. I am a veteran of the United States Armed Forces and served active and reserve duty in the U.S. Navy from 1991 to 1999. This is my thirteenth year teaching at MMS and my twenty-third year in the teaching profession. 

Traveling is my passion and I've literally been around the world.  My scholarly travels include a Fulbright to West Africa (Sierra Leone and the Republic of Guinea) in 2008, a Transatlantic Outreach Program "TOP" study tour with the Goethe- Institut to Germany in 2011, a National Consortium for Teaching About Asia "NCTA" study tour to the People's Republic of China and South Korea in 2012, and most recently a Keizai Koho Center study tour to Japan in 2014.  For 2018, I plan on returning to South Korea with the Korean War Digital History Project. I also enjoy hiking and frequent the Appalachian Trail on section hikes.  My Trail Name is "Wrong Way" .... it's a long story :)
