James Wood  | 2019-20 Middle School Scholastic Fellow

I am a mathematics teacher who has a passion for all things gaming. I have an amazing family that I love to play games with, and my weekends will often find me playing board games with them. I have started gaming clubs, Esports teams, board game clubs, and hosted a middle school Esports invitational tournament. I enjoy woodworking and playing Magic the Gathering in my spare time.

Why did you become a NASEF Scholastic Fellow?

I want to provide the best possible opportunities to my students, including offering them an Esports class that will be engaging, enlightening, and entertaining.

What is your favorite game?

Magic The Gathering
