Mr. Pawley

Mathematics Teacher

I grew up in Wildwood, NJ and moved to CA when I was 18 years old.  Before I moved, I earned my degree in culinary arts.  I play guitar, love music, and love being a teacher. After I earned my degree in Information Systems Management from USF, I worked for Tom Raley at Sunnyside Farms. He was the man that started the Raley’s grocery store chain! After five years, I decided that programming computers was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. In 1984, I was hired at Holy Spirit School! I also teach three classes at Notre Dame Vacaville. After school, I tutor 6th grade math through integrated Math II.  This keeps me on top of current trends and the newest materials.  I enjoy teaching 6th through 8th grade Accelerated Mathematics at both schools very much.  We may learn at an accelerated pace, but my students control the pace by asking questions.  We use riddles and puzzles to enhance our learning!
