I have taught for seven years at Pacific High School in Ventura, CA as a math, science, life skills, and transition teacher. I have also served as a summer school principal, WASC Coordinator, administrative designee, and math department chair. Before becoming a teacher, I worked ten years as an instructor and assistant coordinator with people with developmental disabilities in Santa Barbara, CA. As a teacher and instructor, I believe in setting up structures and lessons that challenge and enable people to make focused changes in their lives and to the world around them. My education includes a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Physics/Engineering from Westmont College, a Master’s of Arts degree in Mythology/Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, a teaching credential in mathematics, an administrative credential, and a soon to be completed Master’s of Science in Educational Administration. When I am not involved in my educational pursuits, I spend the majority of my time with my beautiful wife and three very talented children.
