Kari Morita Mathematics Courses Email: email@example.com Phone: 714-626-4364 Ms. Morita was born in Fullerton, California but moved north at a young age and grew up in Ventura County. She came back to Orange County for college and graduated with a Bachelor of Mathematics degree in Economics from Cal State Fullerton (CSUF) in 2006. She then continued her education at CSUF to complete her secondary teaching credential in 2007.
Throughout college, Ms. Morita worked as a youth minister at her church which was where she solidified her goal to work with teenagers. Teaching high school seemed to be the perfect blend of her love for mathematics and her passion for guiding teenagers to reach their goals. Through teaching, Ms. Morita rediscovered her love of statistics and data analysis. She encourages students to ask the question, “When are we ever going to use this?” Personally, Ms. Morita enjoys spending time with her family, days at the beach, biking, snowboarding, and playing with her dog Pebbles.
Mr. Adams graduated from UC Irvine with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2007. He initially worked as a Design Engineer on the Pilot Controls for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, then switched to supporting Aircraft Interiors for the Airbus A380, then finally worked as the Project Engineer for a Lockheed Martin UAV. After his years of experience working as an Engineer, he felt a calling towards teaching; he left the field and pursued a teaching credential at Cal State Fullerton.
With his background, Mr. Adams thought teaching only Physics would be applicable. He then found the EPIC program at Sunny Hills and saw how he could incorporate his work experience into the classroom. He currently teaches Fundamentals of Engineering and CP Physics. He found the job satisfaction that he had been looking for! His personal interests include playing beach volleyball, bouldering, and yoga. He is a world traveler; his recent travels including Japan, Brazil (for the World Cup), Central America, and Tanzania.
