Craig Butz - Humanities

B.A., English Education, Ohio University
M.A., English Language and Literature, Ohio University

Craig joined The Bay School in 2008. He grew up in small-town Ohio and chose to make education a career after spending summers during college as a camp counselor and naturalist. His more than 13 years of high school teaching experience includes urban college preparatory high schools and rural vocational career centers. Blending the hands-on, project-based approaches he learned while teaching at High Tech High with the rigorous academic focus of his university-level instruction, Craig seeks to give students the tools they need to follow their curiosity, enabling them to learn independently. When he isn't teaching, Craig pursues his many other interests such as ceramics, photography, and cycling. Although he's a bit of a tech geek, he is also an adventurous traveler. He's driven through 49 states to visit the southernmost, easternmost and northwesternmost points in the contiguous United States, has traveled to 15 foreign countries on four continents and hopes to visit many more.
