As a member of The Heights faculty since 2001, David Fornaciari brings 19 years of prior teaching experience—in the Fairfax County school system, Westminster School in Annandale, and Saint Ignatius School in Maryland—to the School. He will be starting his 41st year as a classroom teacher. Prior to joining the faculty, Mr. Fornaciari’s classroom work focused on science and math, with additional administrative duties as a faculty and student mentor and coach. A former VISTA volunteer where he taught English to Laotian refugees, he holds a master’s degree in education from George Mason University and a B.S. from St. Bonaventure University. Outside of the classroom, Mr. Fornaciari enjoys watching old movies or his beloved Red Sox, reading, and has been spotted watching the Height’s baseball team.
