Richard Losciale

I am a Certified Senior Advisor since 2017 and a member of the St Louis Certified Senior Advisors Leadership Network.I am a graduate of The City of New York University’s Brooklyn College. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and French with a focus on Irish Literature and Etymology. I am a Phi Beta Kappa. graduation, I embarked on a lifelong Education career path, taught middle and secondary education, GED within the social justice system for the New York State BOCES program. Having taught both college-bounds and non, I recognize the art of skill and knowledge transfer in the classroom and love lighting up my students as they grow in knowledge. I started and ran an adult technology and soft skills training company for 15 years, pioneering government security training after 911, cloud computing and coding skills. I am not just a sage on the stage or a podium hugger type of teacher: I applaud and recognize everyone’s unique learning styles and adapt my knowledge transfer methods to suit. We can march to a test prep discipline or openly explore the topics at hand in my classes. I am a firm proponent of education. When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy playing bass guitar, film noir, cooking, wildflowers and the company of good friends and family.
