Brief Biography: Mr. Gerstle decided to become a history teacher after having been taught by exemplary history teachers in both middle school and high school. “Many of these individuals were tremendous influences and were great sources of encouragement for me,” says Mr. Gerstle. “I hope to one day be an influence to the next generation of students and encourage them to further themselves as both scholars and individuals.”
In Mr. Gerstle’s free time, he enjoys playing and listening to music and reading history, political science and literature.
