Biography

B.A., University of Florida, Gainesville

Greg Cunningham has taught secondary reading, English language arts and social studies at P.K. for since 2000. Before that, he taught at Dunnellon Middle School in Marion County. He has lived in Gainesville most of his life, and is a P.K. lifer (1966-1979).

He is fascinated by the art and science of teaching and compelled to learn as much as he can. He believes that it’s the focus on professional development and continuous improvement that makes P.K. is such an amazing place to work – not always easy, but always amazing.

He knows Florida’s literacy standards well and has served on a number of statewide content review committees. He finds the work fascinating, but strongly believes that, as important as testing standards is, it’s more important not to lose sight of the number one goal: getting kids excited about their own literacy.

Perhaps more important, he knows well the expectation placed on kids in 21st century learning and inextricable link between academic success and emotional connection to content.
