Get to Know Mr. LucasHere's just a little bit about me. This is my seventeenth year at Fort Couch. I received my education degree from Grove City College, where I obtained my certification in mathematics, physics, and general science. I also earned my Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University. Before coming to Fort Couch Middle School, I taught mathematics and physical science to eighth graders at Wendover Middle School in the Hempfield Area School District.Outside the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Amy, and playing with my kids, Addison, who will turn thirteen in October, Karley, who turned eleven in July, and Jonathan, our 8 year old. Addison comes to Fort Couch this year (oh my), Karley will comes to Boyce, and Jonathan stays at Streams. I also enjoy golfing, reading, and watching just about any form of competitive sports. I grew up in the midwest, so I am a HUGE Notre Dame football and Cubs fan. My wife and I love taking trips with the family to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware (every summer) and Disney (as often as we can). We have lived in USC for 9 years. I spend a lot of my time doing fixer-upper projects around the house.
