Mr. Cecil grew up in the San Fernando Valley, but later moved east to attend Wesleyan University, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a double major in Film Studies and Philosophy. He then moved to New York City, where he earned his Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in History through the Bard College MAT Program.
Mr. Cecil cut his teeth teaching social studies at the Cleveland High School Humanities Magnet, where his colleagues awarded him "Outstanding New Teacher". He is incredibly excited to be teaching at the Grant College Prep and Digital Arts Magnet!
When not reading or watching the latest blockbuster, Mr. Cecil can be found experimenting in the kitchen.
