Mr. Gold is from Central Pennsylvania. After garnering a Journalism degree from Penn State University and working in country radio for 4 years near his alma mater, he followed his dreams of songwriting and teaching to the Nashville area.
Mr. Gold has earned his Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Middle Tennessee State University. The 2018-2019 school year marks Mr. Gold's 5th year of teaching; he's spent his whole career teaching English Language Arts. For 3 years he taught at Harris Middle in Shelbyville and he spent 1 year at Oliver Middle in Nolensville. He's VERY glad to join the Rock Springs Middle team!
He doesn't just teach writing, it's also one of his passions, in fact his most recent album, "Where's My Breath," features 6 tracks that he wrote or cowrote. You may stream the album by clicking here.
In his free time, he likes to watch vintage WWE and old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episodes. He's an avid fan of the Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Penn State Nittany Lions (WE ARE!!). To unwind, he likes to go to the gym to work out, write and perform music (view Mr. Gold's most recent music video by clicking here), and hang out with his wife.
