All About Mr. Gold

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, and he has just begun working toward his Doctorate with Liberty University.  The 2023-24 school year marks Mr. Gold's 10th year of teaching; he's spent his whole career teaching English Language Arts. For 3 years he taught at Harris Middle in Shelbyville, he spent 1 year at Oliver Middle in Nolensville, 4 years at Rocky Fork Middle, and now he's making his return to Rock Springs Middle!  

He doesn't just teach writing, it's also one of his passions; in fact he's just released a new song called "Mustard Seed," he's got a multi genre blog, and he just finished his first children's book which is currently being illustrated by his former student Jett Bailey.

In his free time, he likes to watch old school WWE and old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episodes.  He's an avid fan of the Tennessee Titans and the Penn State Nittany Lions (WE ARE!!).  To unwind, he likes to go to the gym to work out, write and perform music and stories, and watch baking competition shows on Food Network.
