Maspeth High School's American History Teacher, Keith Powell, travelled for two and one half hours beyond Block Island Sound to spend part of his weekend enjoying one of his hobbies, fishing.
On his way out to the deep, open ocean, Mr. Powell had an opportunity to see dolphins and whales in their natural habitat. He maxed out catching 10 bass, and is proud to have caught a 16-pound cod.
Mr. Powell earned a Bachelors Degree in Adolescent Social Studies Education at SUNY Oswego and also has a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from SUNY Oneonta.
As an elected representative at the school, Mr. Powell represents Maspeth High's teachers, paraprofessionals, guidance counselors, secretary, social worker, speech therapists and psychologist as the United Federation of Teachers Chapter Leader.
