Mr. Mike Birnbaum

Hello! I am the new Journalism/Newspaper/Yearbook teacher at Plano East Senior High School.  I'm excited to be a part of such a vibrant community and I really look forward to the 2022-2023 school year. This is my 11th year teaching in Texas. I spent the last few years at Argyle High School. I have lived in Texas for over 12 years now, but I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA (Go Eagles!). After college, I spent seven years working for CNN as a writer and associate producer. I eventually transitioned to the field of public relations, working for clients in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Tulsa, where my goal was to gain positive publicity and media exposure for a multitude of clients. Eventually, I decided to follow in my parents' footsteps and become an educator. I relocated to Texas and never looked back.
