Mr. Eliot Underhill
I am originally from California where I was born and raised, prior to joining the Navy and traveling around the world over the course of 22 years, visiting more than 53 different countries. While in the military I learned that I enjoyed school and began to take college courses, completed my bachelor of Science Degree in Administration of Justice from San Diego State University, later obtained a post bachelor certification in Paralegal Studies from the University of San Diego, and ultimately a Master of Science degree in Education (Administration) from Carthage College. After moving from San Diego I settled in Wisconsin to be closer to family, where I taught ESE/Special Education and was an administator in an urban school district, specializing in Alternative Education. Approximately five years ago the majority of my family and I moved to Florida and we were fortunate enough to discover Punta Gorda. During my off hours or time that I am not at school I can be found in my kitchen tweaking some recipe, gardening, riding bicycles around Punta Gorda, photographing classic cars, traveling nationally or internationally (physically, reading or via a movie). I look forward to meeting each of you and learning more about you in class.
