John Morrison was born and raised in Suffern, NY. He earned his bachelor’s degree in government from Hamilton College and his master’s in international development from Fordham University.

Mr. Morrison, who has been teaching history since 1989, joined the faculty at Santa Fe High in 2002. He became a teacher because he was convinced that he “could make a difference.”

“History requires creativity, and teaching it allows people to spend time understanding, exploring and practicing,” he said, adding that he chose history as his subject because he loved it as a kid and it was a challenge.

Mr. Morrison’s hobbies include baseball, fishing, biking, swimming and spending time with his family. He and his wife have two teenage children.

“I love working here at Santa Fe High,” he said. “I am always very fortunate and I love my co-workers.”
