Mr. Bissinger is a Mathematics and Science Subject Expert Teacher originally from Long Island, New York. He received his bachelor's degree in childhood education from Long Island University. Previous to BASIS Independent Brooklyn, he taught second grade in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Prior to that, he taught fifth grade math in Harlem as well as special education middle school students in Elwood, New York.
"My ultimate teaching goal is to prepare every BASIS Independent Brooklyn student to graduate from a selective college or university," says Mr. Bissinger.
"Outside of teaching our future leaders," continued Mr. BIssinger, "I can almost always be found on the sprawling hills of Prospect Park. Whether I am reading a good book, fishing at the lake or just playing a little soccer with my pup, Prospect Park is where you could find me!"
