Hi, my name is Oscar Carrion and I am a 10th grade humanities teacher at HTHM. I grew up with family carne asadas, guitar playing, and basketball in Chula Vista, CA. I went on to receive a BA in Sociology from UCLA. I enjoy reading about physics, philosophy, history, sociology, and science fiction. I also love playing basketball and rock climbing. I am passionate about making sure my students understand the white supremacist imperialist capitalist patriarchal system (<3 bell hooks) they are growing up in and aim to facilitate experiences where they feel equipped to solve the problems they care most about. I am married to a force of nature, Katie, who is an amazing artist and human being. I have played guitar for a long time now and am an active musician who performs and records regularly. I love seeing live music and am humbled to have seen personal heroes such as Stevie Wonder, Sonny Rollins, A Tribe Called Quest, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and many more. All in all, I am an old soul with a deep love for my family, friends, and music.
