Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Rooney

Dear Families,

This will be my 21st year teaching in the Middleboro Public Schools. I began teaching kindergarten when it was still a half day program. In my second year,  I piloted a full day kindergarten program. For my third year, I looped with half of my Kindergarten class. I would return to kindergarten the following year and remained there for the next 12 years. Although things are going to look a lot different, I am very excited to begin my sixth year of teaching second grade.

I graduated from Bridgewater State College with a degree in History, with a High School Education minor. I earned my Masters Degree from the University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth in Elementary Education. I also taught the Early Childhood Associate Degree program at Bay State College for 9 years in their evening program.

I grew up in Middleboro, went to school here at HBB, and graduated from Middleboro High School. I have two children, Patrick (25), and Paige (15). My wife Paula is a teacher in the Bridgewater-Raynham schools.

My family and I love camping and try to go as much as possible. We love to go kayaking, biking, and hiking on our trips.

I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year in grade 2.
