Mr. Chris George

I'm a CHS Alumni (class of 2000) who ran Cross Country and Track & Field at CHS. I ran Cross Country on scholarship and earned my degree in Mechanical Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology, class of 2004. I started my career in teaching at Charlotte High School in August 2004 (2 weeks before Hurricane Charley). Besides being an educator in my 20th school year, I'm the head coach for Cross Country (20th Season) and Robotics Mentor (12th Season). Looking forward to another great school year. Go Tarpons!
