Sixth Grade

Mr. Morgan's Website

Greetings students and families!

This is my seventh year here at Sinsheimer, and my sixth year as a 6th grade teacher. I am a San Luis County local, born at Sierra Vista Hospital and raised in Los Osos. I originally moved into San Luis Obispo to live in the dorms at Cal Poly and lived in SLO for the next 12 years. Then in April of 2015 my wife and I bought a house out in Morro Bay.

I am so glad to be teaching 6th grade once again this year. I enjoy the curriculum and the out-of-classroom experiences that happen during this last year in elementary school. I also really enjoy getting to know the students and see them grow and change in this transformational year.

Outside of work I spend my time surfing, hiking, and camping.

Don't forget to check out the syllabus link to the right for information about the topics we are covering in 6th grade. Also check out the resources link to the right to get even more important information.
