Hello everyone! I'm Mr. Mark Goelz and I teach 6th level math. This will be my 24th 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 is busy each day with our 19 year old son, Coby, our 16 year old son, Hunter, and our 12 year old son, Troy. When I'm not watching the boys grow, taking them places, or feeding them, I enjoy spending time coaching my younger son's sports teams and watching Coby play college football at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. I'm also a huge Pittsburgh sports lover... GO PITT! GO STEELERS! GO PENS! GO BUCS!
