Hi, my name is Mr. Cross. This is my 15th year working for Erie's Public Schools and my 4th year working at Strong Vincent Middle School. I am a Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers fan. I enjoy exercising and going on camping trips. In addition, I spend a lot of time at soccer and baseball games watching my son and daughter play. I enjoy teaching the 7th and 8th grade Colonels at Strong Vincent! Seventh grade focuses on World Cultures, Geography and Entrepreneurship, while the Eighth grade focuses on American History. It's going to be a great year of learning!
