Mr. Schweninger hails from Greensboro, North Carolina originally graduating from Grimsley High School (Go Whirlies!). Oberlin College became the destination for his undergraduate work where he majored in European History spending a year studying in Florence, Italy. In 1999 he and two college friends moved out to San Francisco to find their fortunes and after a couple different jobs in the corporate world he began his graduate work in the M.U.S.E. (Multicultural Urban Secondary English) Program at the University of California at Berkeley in 2002. After teaching High School English in Oakland and Richmond California for 12 years, it became time to move back to North Carolina to be closer to family and friends. Mr. Schweninger loves his new home here teaching 8th grade at Turrentine and is excited for the upcoming school year!
