Here’s a little more about me…
I am a 5th generation San Franciscan Chinese American. My great-great-grandmother came over here in the 1800’s from Toi San. Both my parents were born in the US, which explains why I can’t really speak Chinese.
I went to public schools my entire life (Commodore Sloat, Aptos, Lowell. I believe that improving public education is the best way to help a community. I had some great teachers along the way (Ms. Abad, Mr. Kendall, Mr. Granucci and Mr. Carmack … and others) and can only hope to do my best to help young people learn and reach their potential.
I graduated from U.C. Davis in 1994, with a double major in Biological Sciences and Drama. I got my teaching credential from S.F. State in Secondary Education. I also have a Master’s Degree in Theology.
I started out in 1995 as a student teacher at Galileo and was fortunate to be kept on in the science department for these past 20+ years. I’ve taught Biology, Physiology, 9th Grade Integrated Science, AP Bio and Biotechnology. Galileo has had it’s ups and downs and it’s been a privlege to be a part of the Galileo family.
I married my wife Vivian in 2005. We had our first baby, Lauryn Sunny, on May 12th, 2010. In 2012, we had another baby girl named Noelle. We live in Daly City near Westlake, so look for me at Wing Stop or Serramonte!
