Let me introduce Mr.
Mr. Nease hails from Savannah, GA and is a new edition to our History Department on the University campus. Mr. Nease has a diverse background and some cool stories about his life. Living and learning in a place like Savannah, it's no wonder why Mr. Nease has a love for history. Growing up in Savannah, he said he was always surrounded by forts, cemeteries and battle sites. "Here I am, standing on the same ground as these men... just walking down the street makes you feel like you are in the 1800's."
Mr. Nease has a
Bachelors and Masters in History. He got his start at Savannah Classical Academy, and
orked the last three years at David Emanuel Academy in Stillmore, Georgia.
He has held the position of Dean of Students in Discipline, and was a head soccer coach.
Teachers tell us time and again, real-world experience can change your life. Well Paul Nease has lived it. In his late teen's, Mr. Nease had the opportunity to work, as a civilian, at West Point Military Academy. With his love of history, being a part of the this prestigious organization helped mold him into the man he is today.
When asked what made him choose St. Luke's he said, "I wanted to teach at a challenging college prep school, and St. Luke's met this criteria... College prep schools raise the level of students understanding which in-turn makes the teacher work harder. I wanted this type of environment." Well we are sure glad he chose us!
When Mr. Nease was 12 years old, he was a part of the Georgia Olympic Soccer team. His team competed against teams representing other states and he even played a game against a team from Liverpool, England.
What a cool experience!
