Hello and welcome to our awesome PUHSD family and specifically Heritage high school American Government & economics. My name is Mario Moreno and I will be your guide in learning all about American Government & economics in these one semester courses. I hope you had a good break and I’m excited to get all of you students off to a great start to earning your required credits toward graduating high school!
Sometimes in life we are handed tough or adverse situations. Just know that adverse situations and experiences often prepare ordinary people for extraordinary destiny's. Maintaining a positive attitude and being willing to adjust to new things is key to any successful transition and more importantly to your personal growth. An online format was a bit adverse for me, however I chose to adapt, as you did, and we made it work. It may take a bit to get back in the groove of things, but I am happy and excited to be back all the way live and that's no jive! I am here for you and strive to help you thrive in these courses and in your lives!
I’d like to share a little about myself. I was raised in various cities across Southern California. I received an associate’s degree in Liberal Studies at Cerritos Community College where I also wrestled and played football. I received my bachelor’s degree in political science from San Francisco State University, where I also wrestled, was an audio visual assistant, pre-law advisor, and served as an intern probation officer for San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department. I began teaching in PUHSD in 2000 and have since received a master’s degree in Educational Administration from Cal State San Bernardino and occasionally serve as admin designee. Through the years I have coached football, wrestling, volleyball, baseball, softball, tennis, track & field, golf, cross-country, and soccer. I absolutely love helping and encouraging others so teaching / coaching has been a blessing.
It is my goal to teach you all about the curriculum, and also teach you a little about how good choices can lead you down a path of happiness and success! With that said, we will also do several activities to enhance our social and emotional learning and knowledge to positively impact and equip ourselves with a mind to make the best possible choices. Happy learning and I look forward to working with you all.
