Mr. Michael Eby
Greetings and welcome to my home page!
A little about me:
Born in raised on
hay farms an hour outside of D-town (yes,
After spending a
number of years working in management positions for medium to large-sized
corporations, I decided to change my original path of study (Business
Administration) to my true calling, Foreign Language Education. I have always admired teachers and I love
academia. I also love different
languages and cultures… something that has been a part of my life since birth
(considering my grandmother was born and raised in
I have now gained fluency in Spanish and am employed by Pinellas County Schools as a Spanish teacher at Seminole High School (go Warhawks!!!) I am currently studying to become fluent in Mandarin Chinese, as well. I also hope to one day “master” Japanese, Portuguese, and Italian as well… A little ambitious, huh? *haha*
As an example of
my love for different cultures and language, I have traveled to many places
around the world… I am not sharing this
to brag or boast; instead, I like to tell people of my travels in the case that
they have questions or are curious about traveling abroad. Places I have visited include: Canada, St. Croix
(USVI), most major
As for my
approach to life (and teaching,) I like to have fun in whatever I am doing and
I try to focus on the positive side of all things. I like to stay active, mainly doing things
that keep me well-rounded and I highly value anything cultural or
"different"… I think it is
extremely important to have a balance in life.
Also, I like to keep an open mind to all things in life and I feel
1.) Respect. (others and yourself)
3.) HAVE FUN.
I hold one saying close to my heart: "Life is not a spectator sport." We are only here for a short while... Enjoy your time here to its fullest extent.
