About Mr. EwingHello 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 forthe 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 myappreciation 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 GatorGardeners in 2010 and our Green Team (recycling) in 2014. I am looking forward to having new Gators getting dirty and learning aboutplants 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.
