Mr. Brian Ceresa

Thank you for visiting my page.  I have been teaching at Cox Mill High School since the fall of 2015.  I taught and coached at A.L. Brown High School in Kannapolis from 2007 - 2015.  

I am originally from Detroit, Michigan, and my wife and I lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for two years before relocating to Concord, North Carolina. 

When not at work, I enjoy traveling and outdoor activities.  Some of my favorite authors include John Irving, Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway, and Kurt Vonnegut.
