My name is Eric Cornish. This year, I have a new and exciting position. I am a multi-classroom leader, which means I get to work with the entire 5th grade science department.M
My fmaily is very important to me. I am married to a wonderful lady who teaches at Daniel Morgan Middle School. We have an outrageous daughter, Iris (4 1/2), and a wreckingball of a son, Walter (2 1/2). I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and earned a degree in chemistry from UNC at Chapel Hill. For 2 years after college, 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. Kids do the work! I was selected as WPS Teacher of the Year in 2018, which was a tremendous honor.
Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. We are here for you and your children.
