Hello!  My name is Nick Donnelson and I have been teaching in the Perris Union High School District for 26 years.  I am a U.S. Army Veteran and have lived overseas in South Korea and Taiwan.  I taught English as a second language while living and studying in Taiwan.  I currently teach mostly Algebra 1 and Geometry and lately just Geometry which is great; it is my favorite topic in mathematics.  This year I teach 7th grade mathematics back at my old school where I began; Pinacate Middle School.  I'm a big geek when it comes to sci-fi and sports.  My favorite teams are SDSU, the Broncos and the Padres.
