A Bit About Me:

This is my 16th year at Castro Valley HS. I've been here so long that a number of my former students are now my colleagues. I keep waiting for the day when I will teach the child of one of my former students...but I'm not there yet. Obviously I generally like the place and am committed to it for the long haul.

I have been teaching APUSH for 15 years, Modern World History for 14 years and Afrocentric USH since it was created eight years ago. I have also taught US History and CCG in the past. It is going to be a unique year, but I'm excited to work on transitioning these classes to digital format.

Grading Information: I try to update grades on Aeries once a week; certain long assignments such as essays may take me longer to grade.
