English/History Department Head
Samuel is very excited to be a part of the Fusion Family teaching English and History. After graduating with a BA in History from UCLA, Samuel completed his Single Subject Teaching Credential and Masters of Arts in Teaching at UCI. He has taught at several high schools in Irvine, and has also worked in the Special Education Department. After his experience teaching history in a traditional school setting, Samuel is excited to create a holistic learning environment in his classroom at Fusion, where he can cater to and take into account each student’s needs and passions.
When he’s not teaching, Samuel loves to be outdoors. You can find him training for his next trail running race, or trying to rock climb bigger and more epic walls. He and his wife love to backpack in National Parks and try new types of food.
