    Hi everyone!! My name is Mark Root and I am the 7th and 8th-grade social studies teacher here at Endeavor Charter School. Some of my hobbies include kayaking, fishing, bicycling, and gardening.
    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 23 years of teaching, I have worked with kids ranging from 9-18 years of age. I have taught several topics, including ELA, social studies, computer science, Health, and PE. I also coached volleyball here at ECS and the high school level.
    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!
