About Mr. Sheptyck
I grew up in Milton, MA and attended all of Milton's public schools up through high school. I am a graduate of Milton High School, the University of New Hampshire (undergrad), and American International College (Master's degree). I started teaching at Alden School in 2015, but before that I worked in the Milton, Waltham, and Brookline school systems. I have spent my full Alden career in 4th grade, but I worked in 5th grade before coming here. In the summertime, I work in a welding shop in Quincy - which is a very different kind of work from teaching!
My #1 hobby is playing the guitar. I have been playing since I was 14. I’ve been in lots of different bands and have also spent time working as a private instructor. I’m also a big sports fan - primarily football, baseball, and basketball. I love fantasy football, and my friends and I have a league that has been running since we were kids. I was a baseball player for many, many years. I am a huge Star Wars and Marvel Comics megafan and collect tons of stuff from both franchises. My family owns a home in Eastham on Cape Cod, and we spend a lot of time there fishing, going out on our boat, and going to the beach.
I live in Kingston with my wife (Emily), our two dogs (Frenchie and Drax), and our cat (Reese).
I can’t wait to learn all about you! We are going to have a fantastic year of 4th grade!
