Mr. Effinger-Dean of Students at Voris CLC
1. This is my first year at Voris and Akron Public Schools. I taught high school Social Studies for a little over 5 years. Then, I was the principal of a charter elementary school for 2 years. For the last 3 years, I have been a Lead Instructional Coach for a charter school company.
2. My wife, Debbie, and I have been married for about 3 and a half years. My wife is also in education. She is an Intervention Specialist at Hudson City Schools. We have a 15 month old daughter named Aubrey.
3. I kind of always knew I wanted to be a teacher. However, I came to Social Studies from my middle school Social Studies teacher. He was one of the first around to have a Smart-Board. He did all kinds of cool things with it that sparked my interest.
4. I am a huge sports fan. The Ohio State football and the Cleveland Indians are my favorites. However, I do root for the Browns and some other local teams. I also am a big weightlifter. I played football in high school and rugby in college. I also competed in amateur bodybuilding in college. Now, I just like to lift and stay physically strong.
