Mr. David Firestein

7th Grade Teacher/Upper School Math Teacher and Math Coordinator Grades 6-8

I’m a native of South Jersey, but I went to school at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. At Brandeis, I earned my teaching credential and a BA with a double major in English and American Literature and Philosophy and a minor in Secondary Education. I taught a year of high school English before moving to California and discovering my true passion, teaching middle school science and math. I’ve been a teacher for over a decade and I have also worked with Project Zero, an educational think tank run out of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a summer program for gifted kids.
