I am Mr. Podesta, and I've been teaching in this district since 1997. I have a B.A. in Philosophy and English from CSU, Fullerton and a teaching credential in English/Language Arts from Chapman University. I have taught all four grade levels of high school English as well as having taught Drama and, briefly, ELD. It is my joy to have your son/daughter in my class.
Attached you will find the policies for my English classes. Your son/daughter has a hard copy in his/her notebook as well. Please refer to these for most questions or concerns you may have.
