My name is Ryan LePore and I am a Social Studies Teacher at Canisteo-Greenwood High School. I am originally from Rochester, NY and have taught in several areas around New York State. Most recently I was teaching at Spencerport HS, in Spencerport NY. Before that I was right here in Canisteo filling in for another teacher!
I love teaching history because it allows us as human beings to truly understand how we came to be and give us glimpses into where we are heading. Social Studies is also great because it teaches students many valuable life skills that they will need to succeed in the 21st Century. Some of these skills include: analyzing points of view, determining online source credibility, constructing arguments, evaluating differing opinions, and many more.
When I was teaching here a back in graduate school (many years ago) some of my students began to call me "Mr. Incredible" due to my resemblance of the Disney character. The nickname has stuck and I've been called that ever since. People always ask if I mind being called that and the answer is no!
