Brendan Buckley

Education: Harvard University – B.A.; Boston University – M. Ed.

Chair of the History Department Brendan Buckley has lived in New York for five years and loves the city with the love of an immigrant. He is originally from Fairbanks, Alaska, and is more than happy to tell you about winter mornings at -60 degrees Fahrenheit, or summer evenings where it never gets dark.

Between his time in his hometown and his arrival in New York, Mr. Buckley lived in Boston, where he attended Harvard University for his undergraduate education and received a Master’s degree in Education from Boston University. Prior to coming to York Prep, he worked in the New York City public schools, and for two years he tutored the boys from the Broadway cast of Billy Elliot. He is excited to share his love of history, especially American History, with his students.

In his spare time, Mr. Buckley enjoys rooting for his beloved Boston Celtics, tending the small garden he has constructed in his apartment, and swimming at his neighborhood pool.
