Mr. Tony DeFazio

Hi, this is Mr. D! I am excited for my first year at Concord, where I am teaching English I. I spent the previous 2.5 years teaching English Language Arts at a middle school in West Charlotte. Prior to that, I spent more than two decades as an editor and sports writer. I hope to bring some of the skills and life lessons I learned in the newspaper business into the classroom, where I am excited to engage with your students.

I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I have lived in North Carolina since 2009. I am a sports enthusiast, especially college sports, and a lover of various genres of music. Outside of school, I like to spend time with family: my wife Erin (also an English teacher), my daughter Evie (18) and son Donovan (16) and our two dogs, Bob and Gus.

Here is my schedule for this school year:

1a: English I
1b: English I

2a: English I
2b: English I

3rd: Planning

4a: English I
4b: English I
