Marc Ampon

Born in Hayward, CA, Marc is a WCCUSD English Teacher and Bay Area native. His interest in education formed early in High School where key teachers guided him away from the pitfalls that often plague low income communities. He went from being 1 credit shy of missing High School graduation to now working on a Masters in Urban Education. He attributes that academic turn around to some amazing teachers, and hopes to create similar positivity in his student's lives. Marc prioritizes giving back to communities much like the one he grew up in; whether in his role as a WCCUSD Teacher or as an Author at GO Public Schools!
