MARK SCHACK - SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHER
I'm looking forward to another great school year at Hillview! This year, I will once again be teaching 8th-grade US History, which I taught through much of the '80's and '90's, when students were saving their work on floppy disks, and the cloud stored moisture, rather than information. I also will be teaching an Algebra I support class, an Algebra II independent study, and the Guitar trimester electives, so my days will be rich.
I started my college days as a math major, but earned my B.A. in History from UC Santa Cruz, my M.A. in English from the University of Illinois, and my teaching credential from San Francisco State University. I also have had a lifelong journey through music, which started in front of the speakers of my parents' and grandparents' stereo at the beginning of memory.
