is there to say about me that I don't already share with
my students on an everyday basis...hmmm...let me think..
I was born
in San Diego on October 6, 1979 at 9:47pm (kinda scary I
know that, huh). But I didn't get to stay in San Diego
because my Dad was a navy man and that meant we moved
all over. I have lived in Charleston, South Carolina
for a spell before elementary school but spent a good
and fun 5 years on Guam. I love that place. Then in
1989, my family, which consists of my cool and loving
Mom and Dad and an older and younger brother, moved back
to San Diego.
coming back to my hometown, I went to 3 different
elementary schools and then finally went to Bell Jr.
High School and then graduated from Samuel F. B. Morse
High School back in 1997. I then traveled up the 5 to
La Jolla to go to UCSD. I graduated in 2001 with a B.S.
in General Biology and a B.A. in Psychology. I really
loved that school and had so much fun there...let me
show you a pic to prove it:
spent some more time at UCSD doing their Teacher
Education Program and then went to San Diego State
University to get my teaching credential in biology.
Once I got that...I have been able to find my home here
at San Dieguito Academy. I love this place.
recently earned my masters degree in Education and an
Administrative Credential at CSU San Marcos. I am
happy to be done with it so I can once again focus on
teaching and helping my students become successful.
get asked a lot:
do you live?
get to my house...you just go south on the 805....when
you see the lights of Mexico...make a left and you are
at my house. I live a little south of Chula Vista.
On a good day, it takes me 40 minutes to get to school
and on horrible days it takes me 1 1/2 hours. Good
times =) I have actually moved now to University
City area where I live with my lovely wife.
to a school where I didn't have much support and didn't
feel like what I did mattered. I wanted the opportunity
to give back and make a change in the places where I
thought it might be possible. High school is the place
where young people are embarking on their adult life...I
love being a part of that.
