    About Mr. Ewing

    Hello Gator Class of 2019 and welcome to your room, C-12!


          I am excited to be returning to John Green Elementary following a wonderful 2017-2018 school year. 

      It was another wonderful year at the most amazing school around.


            I can’t wait to meet all of you and learn about/from each and every one of you.  I want to give you

    all a little background about who I am.  I grew up in Connecticut and moved to California in 1999.  My

    wife and I currently have three children; a 13 year old boy named Connor who goes to Pleasanton Middle School, 

     Kai, who is now 7 years old and full of spunk and life. He will be at Green as a second grader, and  Delilah rounds out the family as our little 5 year old princess. She will be attending Green as a kindergartener.                                                                                                                                                       
    We live in Pleasanton and love helping out in our neighborhood and community
    Since I was able to get on my two feet, soccer has been a big part of my life. I have coached competitive soccer for
    the past 21 years.  Last year I was the director of coaches for the U-8 Development program at Ballistic United in Pleasanton.  I am taking the year off from coaching competitive soccer in order to be around my kiddos more, and to coach my daughter's team.
    I love to pass on my passion for living an active lifestyle and my
    appreciation for the outdoors. Some other enjoyments of mine are; snowboarding, backpacking,
    reading/learning, and spending time outside with my family. Also I helped found our Green Gator
    Gardeners in 2010 and our Green Team (recycling) in 2014.  I am looking forward to having new Gators getting dirty and learning about
    plants and gardening and developing a love for growing their own food (organically!).


           I have a Bachelor in Science with an environmental studies focus from Humboldt State, and received my teaching

    credential from there in 2007. I am a Nationally Licensed Youth Soccer coach through the NSCAA.

    Mission For The Class					
    In the classroom, on the playground, and in the community, I have high expectations for our 
    students. I look for best effort, a positive attitude, being an active member of our learning community,
    and personal responsibility for learning. I want our students to be enthusiastic, confident, inquisitive,
    and independent learners. Parent-student-teacher collaboration is also very important toward the success of the student; my door
    is always open.
