My name is Geoff Mainwaring and I’m originally from Missoula, Montana. I teach English 4, English 7, and Creative writing at Paris
2017-18 is my sixth year at Paris. I still enjoy adapting my teaching to Paris’ independent learning model.
Introduction to Creative Writing is a 1/2 credit English elective for students who want to have fun with words and challenge themselves to improve their ability to write poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction. In the past I've been able to schedule some professional & published authors to guest teach seminars. I hope to continue offering exciting creative writing opportunities this year.
Before coming to Great Falls in 2005 to teach at Great Falls High School, I worked as a substitute teacher in Missoula, MT and taught at the University of Banja Luka,and the Banja Luka College of Communications in Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, Bosnia.
My hobbies include reading, cooking, camping, composing poetry, watching college football, and international travel.
