Social Studies Instructor
Jesse Schwebach grew up on a dirt farm in the Estancia Valley, and graduated from Moriarty High School in 2002. As a high school student, he participated in theater, mock trial, and a (nationally-ranked top ten!) We the People team. In college, he majored in philosophy and history, and after stints as a bartender and a barista for a few months, decided to get his MA in philosophy. Early on in grad school, he began searching for a way to bring philosophy to young people, and was able to begin doing that his second year at EMHS. In his free time, he enjoys gardening, cooking (with a special emphasis on fermentation and bread), and spending time with his wife and two children. His favorite authors include James Baldwin, Wendell Berry, Sylvia Plath, David Foster Wallace, and Arundhati Roy.
