Mr. Buhs's Sixth Grade Core

Joshua Blu Buhs


Welcome! This is my second year as a full-time teacher. I've been a substitute both in San Juan Unified and Folsom Cordova for the past several years.


I live in Folsom with my wife, son, dog, two cats, fish, and frogs.


I am really excited about this year, which I think will be both fun and challenging!

My family

  • We like to hike. This is us at Carson Pass.

  • We enjoy looking for birds and plants.

  • My son's name is Quin. He is almost 17 and attends Folsom High School.

  • My wife's name is Kim. She used to be a doctor and is now a Patient Advocate.

My Past

  • This is me and Kim in high school--a long time ago! We graduated from Casa Roble.

  • We've lived in Philadelphia, Japan, California.

  • I went to UC Davis and the University of Pennsylvania. I received my teaching credential from CSU Fresno.

  • I've written two books!

The Future!

  • I am looking forward to getting to know my students and explore the worlds of ancient history, reading, and writing!

  • I am still learning about the IB program--but it has been awesome so far!

  • I spent a lot of time this summer re-doing the curriculum for both ELA and history. Exciting!
