Nick Lera - 7th-Grade ELA, Coding Teacher



    Let's go Hillview!!!

    Without further ado, here's a little about me:


    I've been at Hillview since the 2013-14 school year. Currently, I teach 7th-grade ELA and Coding 2. 

    A Redwood City native, I attended Roy Cloud School, where I tried at all cost to avoid my mother, the school librarian. After graduating from Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, I went on to study English Literature and Language at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. San Francisco State University was the next stop on my educational journey. At SFSU I earned a Single Subject Teaching Credential: English. Subsequently, I completed an additional credential in Social Sciences.


    When I'm not at school, I'm playing with my two sons, writing, reading, coaching water polo, gardening, or enjoying the simple pleasures of a life well lived. 

    Lastly, I have the best job in the world. Thank you to everyone who makes this possible!

    Mr. Lera
