Welcome to our new U.S. History teacher!
Dear DVS Families,
I am pleased to share with you the good news that we have hired a new full-time U.S. history teacher, Mr. Shane O’Halloran. “Mr. O” is a native of San Diego and earned his Bachelor’s degree in history from CSU San Marcos. Mr. O has been teaching this year in San Diego will be moving up to Los Angeles over the winter break. He will begin at DVS at the start of 2nd semester teaching our 11th grade U.S. History classes as well as the “Landshark” advisory family.
When he is not teaching, Mr. O. enjoys reading historical novels and non-fiction, as well as science fiction. He is a self-proclaimed Star Wars nerd and a Trekkie, as well as a fan of all things Disney. He also enjoys the outdoors, video games, traveling, cooking, and “talking people’s ear off about history”.
We are grateful to Mr. Doug Wright, our long-term substitute who did an excellent job stepping in to help our school family in the wake of Mr. Anderson’s death.
I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Mr. O. to our DVS family in January!
