Meet Chris Cropley, Social Studies Teacher
What impresses you most about the students at York House School?
Other than their work ethic and dedication to achieve excellence, I have been most impressed with how talented and proficient the students are at multiple activities ranging from athletics, music, drama, to academics. Lastly, I am impressed with the kindness towards each other and their teachers. They also have a good sense of what is genuine.
What impresses you about our community overall?
The multitude of activities that go on at our school truly boggles my mind until I look around at the dedicated staff, support staff and students, and then I get it, well a little more.
What are you most looking forward to at York House in the coming months?
I am always most excited about teaching all the interesting upcoming units that will continue to unravel the treasures of history to my students – hopefully! Likewise, I am always excited about the upcoming Soccer season. However, this year has for me the added anticipation of our school trip to Germany and Poland, which will focus on history, culture and some substantial aid for those in need. The trip which is set for March will be an experience of a lifetime for our students and in preparing them with some background readings, I hope that they will get even more out of it.
What is something that people might not know about you that you would like to share?That I do not wear vests on the weekend! On a more serious note, that I am a very sentimental soul.
