My name is John Waters and I am the Chairperson of the Middle School math department. I have a Regents diploma from Babylon Village High School where I grew up amidst the sand and surf until I went to Villanova University from which I received my B.A. degree. While working in the insurance industry for CIGNA for several years, during the evening I obtained my Masters in Elementary Education degree from Chestnut Hill College. I've been teaching mathematics for over two decades. I'm certified in Middle School Math, Science, Language Arts as well as Elementary Education. I completed my National Board Certification in Middle School Mathematics in 2008 and renewed that certification in 2018. I enjoy my involvement in the Springfield Township Educational Association as well as PSEA. Prior to experiencing some major back issues, I enjoyed interacting with our student athletes as the field hockey coach and, previously, as the football and basketball coach. Spartan Pride.
