Hi everyone!! My name is Mark Root and I am the 7th and 8th grade Social Studies teacher here at Endeavor Charter School.
I have been with ECS since we opened the school in 2008. I started teaching 5th grade here and "moved up" to the Middle School in 2011.
During my 17 years of teaching, I have worked with kids ranging from 9-18 years of age. I have taught a number of different topics, including Literature, Social Studies, Computer Science, Health, and PE. I also coached High School Volleyball for a few years.
My wife, Teresa, and son, Connor, and I moved to Raleigh in 2005. Even though my family still lives in Southern California, we have come to think of North Carolina as home!
