Mr. Chuck Puchon

My name is Chuck Puchon and I am excited to be joining the MaST  II community, with over 15 years of experience in education.  I am a graduate of Temple University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education in 2005. I returned to Temple University to earn a Master’s degree in Education Administration in 2011.  During my career, I have had the privilege of serving as a Social Studies teacher and an Administrator. My experiences have taught me that a quality education creates positive opportunities for individuals.  I am eager to apply my knowledge and experiences to assist our students in achieving at the highest level.  I have been working with Mr.Swoyer, Mr. Balara  and the whole MaST Schools Team since last year,
