Biography
Justin is a no-longer-recent transplant to the Bay, having moved to Alameda after several years teaching at international schools in Saudi Arabia, China, Pakistan, Togo, and India. During this time he has been a fifth grade classroom teacher, a middle school English, Social Studies, Math, and Science teacher, a high school English and AP Languages and Literature teacher, and once even had time to direct a student play. Justin's practice is focused on student driven inquiry and experiential learning in order to foster deep, meaningful, and transdisciplinary connections and understandings. He is also a vocal proponent of the serial comma.

In addition to his great affection for evergreen forests and the Pacific Ocean, Justin enjoys culinary and epicurean pursuits, and has already begun working down the list of San Francisco's many Michelin starred restaurants.
