Coach Padon

Hello Everyone and thanks for visiting my page! I have been a teacher here at Pittsburg High for the last six years, and working with our students and staff continues to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. I was fortunate to be the varsity boys basketball coach for my first five years and hope to someday return to that role. Currently, my wife and I have our hands full with our one and half year old son Declan Padon, and his little brother is on the way in July 2020! Below you will find some more information on me, as well as a link to our PHS PE website where students and parents can find assignments, information, and other helpful resources. Thanks again for visiting my page and GO PIRATES!

Coach Padon Bio



Graduated Davis High School (Davis, CA) in 2000

AA Degree, Sacramento City College (2004)

BA Degree, California State University Monterey Bay (2008)

MA Degree, Concordia University, Irvine (2014)



My wife is a 4th grade teacher in the Bay Area, we have a fifteen month old son named Declan, and another boy on the way in July. I am a huge animal lover which has led to us having three dogs (a Rottweiler named Norman, a Pitbull named Addie, and a mini-Aussie named Monty) and four cats! My dream is when I retire from teaching to open a dog sanctuary for older dogs whose owners have passed away. I am passionate about health, fitness, and clean eating. My favorite hobby is bass fishing and I enjoy taking my boat to the lake whenever I have time. I pride myself on being a lifelong learner and keeping an open mind.
