Hello, my name is Anthony Devine. I am an English teacher at El Cajon Valley High School.
Since 2008 I have worked as part of the English Language Development Professional Learning Community to develop a powerful and effective English learner program. Currently, I am a member of three teams of teachers: ELD, 9th grade English, and 10th grade English. I strive to implement innovative and research-based approaches in order to help all students acquire academic English proficiency.
I truly enjoy being an educator. I love helping people learn. I believe that a quality education gives a person true power and true freedom. I believe that education should provide all people with the ability of mind to negotiate the ideas and thoughts that shape reality. I believe that through this ability people will acquire the freedom of mind to make intelligent decisions.
I am married to an amazing woman, Melissa. We have been married for 11 years. We have two daughters, Neva and Lila. I spend most of my free time with my family.
I'm an avid baseball fan and I enjoy collecting autographed rookie cards of baseball players that I get signed in person. Also, over the past few years I've started getting in to reading graphic novels (although my wife insists they are comic books). In general, I enjoy good stories whether they come in the form of books, television shows, or movies.
