World Language Department Head & Teacher/Mentor
Andy is a veteran teacher with international experience. He currently teaches middle and high school history, Japanese, and more at Fusion. However, he also had experience with students as young as three while teaching English in Japan. His educational background consists of an MA and a BA in History with an emphasis in teaching from Cal State, Northridge, as well as an AS in Administration of Justice. In addition, Andy also has JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) certification, along with the immersive experience of living in Japan for a number of years.
Today, Andy continues to study language and history while also raising a bilingual daughter with his wife from Japan. When he has free time, Andy likes to take walks with the family, build Lego sets, read graphic novels, and relax with a good show. Since his daughter was born in 2018, Andy has watched Sesame Street more than any other show in recent years (and learned quite a bit).
