For me, Venice High School is more than just a place where I work. I love this school and I am personally committed to this school. I was born into the Venice Gondo family. My father, my siblings and I all graduated from Venice High. Now my three children have all graduated from Venice High. I am, or have been, a stakeholder of Venice High in every way - as a student, an alumnus, a parent, a community member and a staff member. After graduating from UCLA, I taught at Belmont High for many years until I joined the Venice faculty in 2000. It feels like I'm back home.
I teach mathematics in the Venice World Languages and Global Studies Magnet. Students may come in for help at lunch except for Thursdays. I am the sponsor of the Christian Club which meets every Thursday at lunch in my room.
I believe Venice High is the best high school on the Westside and it is my hope that each student who attends Venice High will have a positive educational experience.
