Howdy! I’m Mr. Kirk, and I enjoy taking naps, relaxing with my dog, and drinking lots and lots of coffee. I grew up in Murrieta after moving to CA from New Hampshire when I was in middle school. A motto that I live by is “Learn from Challenge and Change.” I love this because it is a continual reminder to push myself, take chances, and not be afraid of failure. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in retail management and pharmaceutical sales for many years. While those were great, the desire to make a difference and help people maximize their potential is what led me to pursue a career in education. I’m so happy I did because now I can’t envision myself having any other career!
