Mr. Joseph Unkel

  • Hello students and parents!

    My name is Joseph Unkel and chances are if you are on my teacher site I am either your teacher for this upcoming year or your child's teacher. Woot woot! This year is a very exciting time as we get to return to the classroom for the first time since March 2020. If virtual education has taught us anything is that school is more than just a place where children go to "learn stuff" but also a place where students learn who they are and the person they want to be. I am excited to be back in the building and eager to work with you along this journey as we learn about each other together. 

    Just a little about me. I recently graduated from Rutgers University-New Brunswick in 2020 where I received my B.A. in History. I loved RU so much that I stayed there for an additional year to receive my Ed.M in Social Studies Education. During my education, I had the honor to student teach in Rahway High School since fall 2019 and I am happy to say that I found a home here.
