Social Studies


I attended St. Joseph's Elementary School in New Kensington, PA for grades K-8 and graduated from North Catholic High School (Class of '02) in Pittsburgh, PA.  I went on to attend John Carroll University in University Heights, OH (just outside of Cleveland) where I originally majored in Pre-Med before switching to education, and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Middle Childhood Education (Math, Social Studies, and Reading.)


I completed my student teaching at Shaker Heights Middle School in Shaker Heights, OH during the 2006-2007 school year.  I have been teaching here at SMS for my entire career, beginning in 2007-2008.  At the school, I have served as a baseball coach (assistant. 2008-2010, Head 2011- present), the head softball coach (2009-2013), assistant boys basketball coach (2011 - present) and an assistant football coach (2008-present).  This year I am also serving as a representative to the 8th grade representative to theSchool Leadership Team and the assistant athletic director.


Hello, and welcome to 8th Grade Social Studies.  My name is Sean Trees.  I was born in New Kensington, PA just north of Pittsburgh where I lived until I was 23.  I love the Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, and PITT Panthers and basically anything to do with the city of Pittsburgh (the greatest city on Earth!)

Please feel free to contact me at or by calling the school at 326-3601 (email is preferred).

Thank you, and I look forward to a great year!
