Mr. Gin

Mr. Gin has been teaching since 2004. He started out his career teaching chemistry in the East Bay as a part-time job, but his first full-time job was here at SMHS. He originally wanted to teach chemistry, having studied biochemistry in college, but after finishing his teaching credential he met the requirements for both biology and chemistry. After a long job search he ultimately came to find a job teaching biology here at SMHS and quickly fell in love with the discipline.

When I asked what his teaching philosophy was Mr. Gin told me he had never really thought about having one, he just thought that you had to enjoy teaching and want to ensure that your students want to learn and you enjoy teaching them. He advises his students that they shouldn’t be focused on a set end goal on life but rather they should accept that things probably won’t go exactly the way they have planned as a lesson from his own life where he set out to teach chemistry but ultimately found a job in biology.
