Phillip Chardon

I believe it is a political act to provide the best possible education with the highest expectations to all students. I have fulfilled this mission as a history teacher in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, and currently work as the Vice-Principal of Student Support at CAT. I grew up in the Bay Area and attended UC Santa Barbara where I received a degree in History and a Masters in Education. I have since completed a second Masters in Education Leadership. In my personal life, I enjoy politics, graffiti art, photography and traveling. I married my college sweetheart, and we have a beautiful 4 year-old daughter . We currently reside in San Francisco, CA.

One thing that I鈥檓 proud of in my work at CAT is leading two clubs, the Young Men of Distinction, a club aimed at supporting young men in leadership and development, and the Muslim Student Association, a club for students interested in the rich culture of Islam.
