Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year, I am so excited to be back on campus with with students in the classroom! This year is one of celebration and optimism.
This is my 16th year at CMI and 21st year as a teacher. Prior to working at CMI, I taught in San Bernardino, and in the Jurupa Unified School District. Before that, I served in the United States Air Force as an Aircraft Armament Systems Specialist, where I worked on various fighter and bomber aircraft. While in the Air Force, I was stationed at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, and finished my enlistment at Edwards AFB in California.
Minus my time in the USAF, I have always lived in Riverside. This is where I grew up and where I met my wife and started a family. In my free time I enjoy fishing, boating, and traveling the world. I have even led 6 tours of close to 200 students total on tours all over Europe and Asia, with a new trip to Italy fin the works for 2025, so be sure to look for that announcement coming soon. Feel free to reach out to me about how to sign up your son or daughter...or even you!
I can't wait to see what memories are made this year, and I look forward to meeting all of you and getting to know you.
Please feel free to contact me anytime about classwork, grades, travel, or about my favorite football team, the Las Vegas Raiders :)
To a great year!
Mr. Brian Dirkswager
