Humans of Northwood: Mr. Simon Shergold

I am from the United Kingdom, and I originally grew up in South London. I moved to Lake Placid last August in 2021. My degree is in History. I’ve got a Bachelor of Arts honor in History with a slant to 20th century modern history. I teach U.S History and A.P History and I am also one of the soccer coaches. I moved to Lake Placid for more family reasons as my wife is from Lake Placid originally. We have been coming here for 20 odd years, and we have a young family so this is a good time to move and build a new life. My favorite activities would be hiking or skiing, although I am not a natural coming from London. My favorite food may well be pizza in Lake Placid, but I enjoy any Italian food and I miss curry a lot as well.
