Hello everyone! I'm Mr. Mark Goelz and I teach 6th level math. This will be my 20th year teaching in the Upper St. Clair School District. I'm a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, a certificate in Children's Literature and a Masters degree in Elementary Education. A lifelong resident of the Pittsburgh area, I graduated from Baldwin High School and currently live in Bethel Park.
Outside of Boyce, my wife Missy and I have found that life changes dramatically each day with our 15 year old son, Coby, our 12 year old son, Hunter, and our 8 year old, Troy. When I'm not watching the boys grow, taking them places, or chasing them around, I enjoy spending time coaching my sons' football, baseball, wrestling and basketball teams. I'm also a huge Pittsburgh sports lover... GO PITT! GO STEELERS! GO PENS! GO BUCS! GO USC PANTHERS!
