Google Drive Autobiography Project

Hello Everyone,


Today you will log in to your Google Email Account and open Google Drive.  You will CREATE a new document.  This document will be a one-page Autobiography all about you.  I have copied and pasted my example below.  Please use the whole page to describe everything about you since you were born.  You must use proper grammar, spelling, sentences, and be prepared to email it directly from Google Drive to Mr. S.  You must use no larger than a 12-font Times New Roman and single space lines.  Please leave a line between paragraphs.  I am looking forward to reading these, and you will be creating a Presentation from the content later this week.  Make sure you include LIKES, DISLIKES, where you grew up, things you did, schools and activities you participated in, and add some things people do not know about you.  Good Luck!

- Mr. S

I was born in Bloomington, Indiana.  I was raised in Indiana, Virginia, and  Missouri until I was in the Second Grade.  My family moved to Western Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.  I attended the Upper Perkiomen School District from 2nd to 8th Grade.  I was then transferred to St. Pius X High School in Pottstown, PA for grades 9-12.

Growing up in rural Pennsylvania had many advantages.  I was active in sports, outdoor activities, and once I was in Middle School, I was able to ride my bicycle just about anywhere.  I also had many part time jobs since the age of 12 to support myself.  I started working on farms in my area to make extra money.  I bailed hay, milked cows, and chased calves around the barn when I accidentally left the gate to their pen open.  I then spent time working for a stone mason who lived on our block.  I spent a summer lifting bricks and blocks, mixing cement and building scaffolding systems.  I learned a lot.  I also delivered papers, worked at local fast food restaurants, and did maintenance work on a local golf course throughout High School. 

My grades were horrible throughout school.  I graduated at the bottom of the class from my high school despite scoring very well on standardized tests.  I was accepted at Shippensburg University in 1986 for a summer program called Act 101.  I was also accepted to the Antonelli School of Art and Design for my photography skills.  In hindsight I probably should have gone to the Photography School.  I did not succeed in college and partied too much.  Eventually I flunked out.  It was not all bad though, I was put in the position of needing to join the Army Reserve to help pay for school, and the leadership skills, training, and discipline would ultimately make that one of the best decisions I have made in my entire life.

I went to Basic Training in 1988.  I was stationed at Fort Jackson, SC for Initial training and Fort Gordon, GA for “Commo” school.  I made some of the best friends of my life while serving my country.  I have excelled at military training and went on to be deployed twice overseas after 9/11.   I am still very interested in the firearms training, first-aid, and other classes I was required to take.  My military service also allowed me to see the world and to really have an appreciation of what being born in the USA means.  I have seen the advantages that are taken for granted by others who have not had the same vision of poverty and war.  I am thankful for those experiences as well.

I was married in 1992 to my oldest son’s mother.  I was divorced and now am re-married to the mother of my other son’s.  My sons are 20, 9, and 7 and are awesome!  I will celebrate my 14th anniversary of my marriage to my wife this year.  We live in our home near King of Prussia, PA.  I began to try to be a teacher while at Shippensburg in 1987.  I wanted to be a history teacher, but found my way into other jobs as I needed more money to support a family.  I started in sales and customer service for various companies in the Philadelphia area in 1991.  With a new family and child to support, I took whatever job was available at the time.  I gradually, over the years, was able to turn one opportunity into another while moving from job to job every 3-4 years.  I got better at sales and more professional in my manners and appearance.  I have sold building products, health care services, engineering services, coatings and paints, and ultimately ended up as a kitchen designer and architectural sales representative.  I also went to Gwynedd Mercy College from 2004-2006 and finished my degree in Business Administration 20 years after beginning it at Shippensburg.

While on deployment in the Middle East in 2008, I was given the opportunity to take my Praxis (teacher’s) exams.  I scored very well with no preparation.  When I returned from overseas, I went back to Gwynedd and enrolled in the Teacher Certification program.  I also approached the School District of Philadelphia for a job.  I was given an Emergency Certification and allowed to teach in January of 2009.  I was at University City High School for 3 years and I worked last year at Crossroads Accelerated Academy at Elverson.  I am excited to be working with you here at Crossroads at Meade!

In addition to teaching,  I coach many sports for my sons, I play volleyball and lead worship and missions teams at my church, and I spend time with my family as much as possible.  I am also a Boy Scout Leader for my sons.  I am interested in sports, video games, and construction projects around my home.  My family and I also enjoy spending time outdoors fishing, camping, hiking, and riding bicycles. 
Foods I enjoy include anything grilled, ice cream, and spinach dip with pumpernickel bread.  I love to cook and enjoy cooking with my 9-year-old.  My goals are to complete my Masters Degree,  continue to coach and work with the Cub Scouts (BSA), improve the conditions here at Crossroads and continue to teach as much as I can.  Ultimately I might want to be a Principal or a Counselor as well.

2013/2014 - Syllabus and Class Rules

The information provided below is posted on a public website and students are assumed to have read, understand, and follow all protocol and rules listed.  Students will be bound by these rules and regulations upon entering Crossroads and cannot claim ignorance of the rules as a defense for poor behavior or poor preparation.  Any questions or concerns may be directed to me at

1.  Students are to enter the classroom calmly and quietly and go immediately to their assigned seats.  You are to sit at a 90-degree angle to your desk with your feet on the floor and good posture (spine straight). 
2.  Students are to be in their seats and prepared to work at the beginning of the period.  If you are not in your seat with your materials at the beginning of the period you are tardy.   Be working on the assignment on the board/website immediately upon entering.
3.  Students are to show respect at all times and in all manners toward themselves, others, and staff.  This includes all verbal and non-verbal forms of communication including body language, facial expression and tone of voice.
4.  Students are to be on task AT ALL TIMES and work to the best of their ability.  This means you are to be working on whatever assignment is given with all of your concentration.  If you are finished an assignment early, you may read or sit quietly and wait for others.  There is no talking in my class except to address the academic issue at hand.
5.  There is absolutely no gum, food, drink, candy, make-up, mirrors, electronic devices or any other distraction allowed in my class.  Any of these visible will be immediately confiscated and picked up after school.  Do not even give the appearance of chewing or it will be deemed that you are doing so. Class time is for learning.  
6. Students are to be prepared with all papers, pens, pencils, notebooks and any other materials required for class.  Never bother me about sharpening your pencil, needing paper, throwing out trash, or any other trivial matter during class.  Class time is for learning.
7.  You are to raise your hand to get permission to speak.  Raising your hand does not give you permission to speak; it just lets me know you want to speak.  You are never to leave your seat without first raising your hand and receiving permission.
8.  If you need to use the restroom you may do so but must make up the time for ten minutes after school.
9.  I do not argue with students.  If you are told to move your seat or given any other direction you are to do so immediately and without complaint.  If you feel this or any other direction is unreasonable you may arrange to discuss it with your counselor or arrange a parent conference on your own time.  Otherwise, follow all directions immediately and without complaining.  Class time is for learning.
10.  You are to remain in your seat until dismissed by Mr. Scribner.  You are responsible to clean any trash in your area whether it is yours or not.  Keep all trash with you until the bell rings and throw it out on your way out of the classroom.
11.  I do not give warnings.  This is your warning.  Any violation of these rules will be met immediately with a 10-minute detention to be served immediately after school and/or other consequences such as copying the rules, parent conference, meeting with the principal or expulsion from school. 
12.   If you do not come to detention, you will receive a demerit and an additional detention. Consecutive missed detentions will result in further disciplinary action.  No matter what other consequence you receive, you will have to make up the 10-minute detention.

Integrity (13 Characteristics)

13 Characteristics of People Who Have Integrity

1. They Value Other People's Time: They value their own time so they also value the time of other people. They know you have plenty of other places you need to be and won’t hold you up. If you spend time with them, it is likely they will thank you for that as well.

2. They Give Credit Where It Is Due: They do not take credit for things they did not do. They will always credit those who deserve it. If you help this person with a project he or she will likely mention your name so you can take credit for your work.

3. They Are Authentic: They are their truest forms. You won’t catch them in a lie or being fake.

4. They Are Always Honest: They are honest people that feel no need to lie as it is important for them to get to where they need to get in life honestly.

5. They Never Take Advantage Of Others: They are not the kind of people who will take advantage of someone else. They love to build people up and help them get where they need to be. Taking too much from someone else will never be an issue with someone who has a lot of integrity.

6. The Do Not Argue Over Disagreements: They will talk through things in a civil manner or not talk at all. You cannot and will not force this person into arguing over something completely ridiculous. I find this to be a very respectable trait.

7. They Give Most People The Benefit Of The Doubt: They try to see the good in everyone. I think this is because they feel like maybe there are more people in this world that also have integrity. That being said, if you take advantage of them too much they will get rid of you.

8. They Know When Something Is Bothering Someone: They have a great intuition that lets them know when something is going on. If someone is down in the dumps they will notice. Chances are they will actually do what they can to cheer you up.

9. They Believe In Others: They accept your word as truth until it is dis-proven. That being said, they do not take lying well. And once you lie to them, it is unlikely that they will ever take your word again.

10. They Apologize First: If they have done something wrong they will come to you and apologize. This is just how they are. They own up to their mistake and try to make things right.

11. They Are Humble: They do not quite know their own worth. While they are very important and do so much good they don’t quite see it. You should remind them of it.

12. They Do Good When They Can: They are always helping other people. They love to know that they have improved someone’s life. It gives their lives meaning.

13. They Are Always Kind To Those Who Need It: Giving kindness can go a long way. When someone looks like they need a little pick me up these people deliver. They can brighten up almost anyone’s day.

If you are someone who has true integrity, thank you for being who you are and thank you for all that you do. You really do actually make a difference in society, please keep up the good work. If you feel no one else is proud of you, know that I am.
