Hi there! I'm Mr. Yoder and I teach 7th grade World Cultures. I am an avid history buff and love to travel. In my spare time I can be seen working with the National Park Service in Philadelphia on the Independence Park Archaeology Site as well as the Historic Eastern State Penitentiary Site. I am an actor and have been in numerous local and regional productions as well as some film work such as the 2005 movie Invincible, Travel Channel's Mysteries At The Museum, and work as consultant on an upcomng NETFLIX series. In my off time I enjoy traveling to new countries and learning new languages.
In October 2013, I am honored to say, I was awarded the Social Studies Teacher of The Year award by The Pennsylvania Council of The Social Studies.
I have a BA in History, BS in Education from Kutztown University, a MA in Holocaust and Genocide Studies from West Chester University and a MA in Historical Archaeology from The University of Leicester in the United Kingdom. I am also an adjunct professor with Desales and Widener Universities teaching WWII/Holocaust Studies.
