Mr. Adam Buklis

Hello, visitors. For the 18/19 school year, I am entering my fifth year of teaching at East Leyden High School. Prior to being hired as a full-fledged teacher, I served for four years as a teaching assistant in the special education programs at both East and West campuses. Currently I teach English I, Principles of Algebra and Geometry, and math in the PASS program. I am also a freshmen girls' basketball coach and an ACCESS advisor. 

Hobbies and Interests: Basketball forever. I also write in my spare time, primarily poetry but also short stories. I also enjoy working out and studying nutrition. Finally, I have taken a liking to making balloon animals in hopes of one day populating my balloon animal menagerie and have a parade each and every week. 

Favorite Quotes: 

Growth is the only guarantee that tomorrow will get better. - John C. Maxwell. 

Enough blame to go around but the new
optimism didn’t stop, helped one
pick up a brush, another a spatula
even as the last polar bear sat
on his shrinking berg thinking,
I have been vicious but my soul is pure.
 
-Dean Young (excerpt taken from "The New Optimism")
