In his eigth year of teaching in Santa Fe, Troy Kavanagh is a NM Level III teacher with endorsements in Language Arts and TESOL. In joining the ATC staff this year, Mr. Kavanagh will be instructing 7th Grade Pre-AP English and 9th Grade English Honors, as well as serving as an adjunct professor at Santa Fe Community College. A previous AVID and creative writing elective teacher, Mr. Kavanagh models and sustains a student-centered classroom of rigorous collaboration, exploration, and personal accountability. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Humanities from The Florida State University (1994) and a Master of Arts in Education from the University of Wyoming (2012). This year, Mr. Kavanagh is looking forward to beginning the opening trials and tribulations of National Board Certification. 

Outside of school, Mr. Kavanagh is an occasional runner and guitarist/songwriter of 30+ years. His previous eight lifetimes passed as part wily snowboarder, part boulderer, and part fly fisherman in the Tetons. In his ninth and current one—most likely his last—he is fortunate to spend his time and love with his wife, Carolyn, son Julian, and daughter, Ansel.
