After 10 years in South Carolina and Tennessee, this Phoenix, Arizona native is excited to be settling down in San Diego. With a BA in Humanities (hybrid religion, philosophy, and English degree) and a minor in Creative Writing from Wofford College and an MEd. in Instructional Practice from Lipscomb University, David is excited to return to the classroom for a sixth year to continue breathing life into the mission in which he fervently believes: Literacy is justice. When he’s not at Mesa, David is likely pulling together his favorite things by listening to a podcast or audiobook while on a run. You may also see him flailing around in the waves at some point as he tries desperately to re-learn to surf.
