Hi! My name is James, and I am a full time history and English teacher in California. I lived in Perú for nine months in between high school and college through Princeton’s Bridge Year Program, then spent the next four years and change in New Jersey, where I met my wife (and fellow teacher). After graduating from the Program in Teacher Preparation, I took a job in San Francisco as a history teacher and basketball coach.
