My name is Eric Cornish. I am married to a wonderful lady, who teaches at Daniel Morgan Middle School. We have an outrageous daughter, Iris Catherine (3 1/2), and a wreckingball of a son, Walter James (18 months). I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and earned a degree in chemistry from UNC at Chapel Hill. For 2 years I served as a Peace Corps education volunteer in Malawi, a small, beautiful country in southern Africa. During this time, I met my wonderful wife, Mary Cate.
We lived in New Mexico, where I earned my Masters in Teaching from Western New Mexico University. We moved to Winchester in 2015 to be a little closer to families in the east. I love being here and part of the Daniel Morgan family.
I believe learning is a messy and active process. I was selected as WPS Teacher of the Year in 2018, which was a tremendous honor. I look forward to the 2021-2022 school year. I believe that we can find greatness amidst these challenges.
In addition to teaching, I enjoy playing outside, learning, reading, cooking, eating, riding my bicycle, and music.
