I am grateful to be entering my 8th school year at Samueli Academy. I have taught classes such as Government/Economics, Film Criticism, and The American Lens. I will again be working with Seniors but now co-teaching with Noah Palacios in a course called Political Studies and a course called Economic Literacy. The first will combine English 12 with American Government and the second will combine Economics with English 12. I am very excited about this unique opportunity at this unique school. Prior to working here I taught in San Diego for 8.5 years. 7.5 years at Julian High School where I also coached the boys varsity baseball team and 1 year at Torrey Pines High School where I coached the JV baseball team.
