Mr. James Eutsey
I was hired at Berlin Brothersvalley High School in the summer of 1991 after teaching two years at Portsmouth Christian Schools in Portsmouth, VA.
I was born and raised in Bullskin Township in Fayette County. I grew up in a great home where I excelled in school as well as athletics. I am a graduate of Connellsville Area High School (go Falcon's) and a proud graduate of Cedarville University. I met my wonderful wife at Cedarville. We have three children. Nicole Chonko (married to Davey) is an elementary teacher in the Somerset School District. Our daughter Jorden is a Physician's Assistant at the Somerset Pain Clinic. Our son Ryan has a youth ministry called Spark, does construction work and has recently passed his federal aviation exam to become a drone pilot. I currently teach academic physics, algebra 3, honors algebra 2, algebra 2, and geometry. I coached varsity baseball for many years both as an assistant and head coach. I also coached junior high boys basketball for a few years. I am currently the head golf coach. We just welcomed our first grandchild on Wednesday, April 3, 2019! Hudson James Chonko.
Why did I decide to become a teacher? My goal is to make a difference in the lives of the students I come in contact with everyday. I want to be a positive role model and do my best to help each student become a positive, hard working member of society. I value strong character, determination, patriotism , a strong work ethic and self discipline.
When I am not working at the school I enjoy archery and spring gobbler hunting, working out, doing construction work, and relaxing with my family. I have been on several mission trips the past several years. I also am a deacon and small group leader at my church.
