Mr. Gian Marco Tamburi

My name is Gian Marco Tamburi and I am originally from Italy, where I spent the first 17 years of my life. I first came to the United States and North Carolina as a foreign exchange student at Hibriten HS in 2007/08. After that, I attended Appalachian State University where I graduated in 2013 with a degree in History- Secondary Education. I previously worked at Maiden Middle School as a 7th grade Social Studies teacher, where I also coached football and soccer.

This is my fifth year at Gamewell Middle, where I have always worked as a 7th grade Special Education teacher. In addition, I also serve as head coach for both the football and girls' soccer team.

I continue to be extremely thrilled and humbled by the opportunity of working at and for Gamewell Middle School: My commitment remains that of putting my dedication and competence at the service of the school and the community.
