North Salinas High School

Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

I have been teaching through the years in all levels up to college. I am currently teaching computer science at the high school level. I got into teaching through coaching at a private school, where the teacher quit, and I filled in until they got a replacement, which did not happen. I enjoyed the interaction with the students, and the excitement in their eyes when learning something new. As for community involvement, I have been a big brother, make a wish organization, and various athletic events and fund raisers. Also have participated in a number of community outreach events sponsored by the local church.

Logan Couture, has been a consistent performer
