Joe Briggs -- 8th Grade
Hello! This is my fifth year here at Loomis Basin Charter School, and I am thankful every day to be a part of this incredible community of learners! I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies, and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from William Jessup University. I am originally from Elk Grove, and following four years of service in the United States Army, moved to Rocklin, where I currently live with my wife, Danielle. Outside of school, I love spending time with my wife, and being outside as much as possible! I enjoy camping, fishing, and exploring the outdoors. Also, I am a huge hockey fan.
My goal is to foster a love of learning in students, and provide an environment where they feel comfortable pushing themselves to succeed. I believe this is best accomplished when students are encouraged to work collaboratively, think critically and creatively, and inquire about our world. I am excited for an exciting year inquiring into Individuals and Societies.
