Thanks for taking the time to read my bio! My name is Adam Ocasek. I’ve been a 7th grade ELA teacher for quite a while but just recently made the switch to teach Read 180. My last teaching job was in Charleston County and I’m extremely excited to be closer to home.
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and my family and I still enjoy cheering on the Steelers and Penguins. I attended college at the University of Montana in Missoula, MT. I graduated in 2002 with a bachelors degree in English and Secondary Education, a Masters degree in Curriculum, and a minor in trout fishing!
After graduating college, I decided to move back to the east coast and settle down closer to home. I lived and taught in Frederick, Maryland for 12 years. In 2015, my wife and I moved to Summerville to be closer to my parents, and sister, who also live in the Summerville area.
I have two children, Annie is 8 and Daniel is 5. They enjoy riding bikes, playing baseball and playing with our two labs, Zoe and Maggie. I have quite a few hobbies outside of school and most them revolve around the outdoors. I enjoy hunting and fishing the most because they are family activities and I really enjoy passing on the outdoor traditions to my kids. When I’m not hunting or fishing, I enjoy hanging out at my house playing table tennis with my kids, reading, or watching Netflix!
