Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Michael Arcuri

I have been a teacher in Holland Patent since 2004.  Prior to that I taught in New Hartford for 3 years as a part-time Physical Education teacher and in the Utica City School district.  I live with my wife and 2 children in Marcy.  I love spending my free time doing anything outdoors.  Hiking, canoeing and camping with my family are some of my favorite things to do.  Besides my family and teaching, my other passion is lacrosse.  I have been involved in lacrosse in some capacity since 1995.  I played at MVCC and SUNY Cortland, coached in Rome and New Hartford and refereed for 6 years before coming to Holland Patent.  I am now the Varsity Boys' coach. 
I enjoy teaching Health because is allows me to interact with students on topics that are relevant to them now and in the future.
