Eric Stolfa

Hi! My name is Eric Stolfa and I’ve been teaching 7th Grade Social Studies in the Brentwood School District for 17 years. I truly love what I do. I began teaching LIIPS courses two years ago to explore aspects of education that I have particular interests in. I’m glad I get to help fellow teachers reach their professional goals and hope they find value in the courses I offer. Currently, I have 9 different courses to choose from. In addition to LIIPS and teaching middle school social studies, I also teach US History and Government for both Summer School and Evening High School.
    In addition to my love for history, I’m an avid sports lover and have played and coached my entire life. Growing up, I played soccer, wrestling and lacrosse. Soccer was always my bread and butter and I was fortunate enough to play in college. Since I stopped playing, coaching has been a major part of my life. I’ve coached at both the middle school and Varsity level for 12 years. I also coach my kids in both soccer and baseball. I attended CW Post and St. Joseph’s College for my Bachelor’s Degree and Stony Brook University for my Masters Degree.
    Personally, I have a beautiful wife named Nicole whom I’ve been married to for eleven years and the two best boys in the world, Eric who’s 8 and Christian who’s 6. Nicole owns a very popular local bakery called Pixie Dust Confectionery and I couldn’t be more proud of her. On any given break from school, you can probably find us at Disney World. That’s our home away from home. Thank you so much for checking out my bio and feel free to email me any questions or feedback about my courses. See you in class!
