Theology and Social Science Teacher 

Chris began his career at Newman as a Student Teaching assignment through Mount St. Clare College in 2000.  He graduated as a Bonaventure Scholar and Magna Cum Laude. At that time, Chris was not planning to remain at Newman, but admits he now couldn't imagine himself teaching elsewhere.
