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 two boys, Declan (18 months) and Camden (two weeks old). Below you will find some more information on me, as well as helpful links for students and parents. Thanks again for visiting my page and GO PIRATES!

My wife is also a teacher.. teaching 4th grade in the Bay Area. We are huge animal lovers 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 retirement is opening a dog sanctuary for older dogs whose owners have passed away. I am passionate about teaching young people, 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.
