Hi, I’m Mr. Luongo, and I’m an English Language Arts teacher at MS118. As an educator, my greatest motivation is to inspire a love of learning in my students. I believe that all students are capable of developing their literacy and writing skills in order to maximize their access to opportunities in the future. As an international school teacher and an educational consultant, my career has taken me across the globe, and these experiences have helped me realize that all students are intelligent, hard working, and capable of greatness. My job is to stoke their desire to learn.
Outside of the classroom, my insatiable drive for exploration and problem solving drives me to climb mountains and slay dragons. When I’m not working, you can probably find me scrambling over the rocks in Harriman State Park or hosting Dungeons & Dragons games and my local comic book store.
Yo hablo un poco de español.
