Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Stamper

Looking forward to meeting you!  My name is Kyle Stamper and I have been teaching for 21 years.  I grew up in Escondido and graduated high school in 1984.  Go San Pasqual Fighting Eagles!  I earned my Associate of Arts degree at Palomar College and then attended CSU Chico for two years.  Chico was amazing and really filled me with a love of learning.  Money was tight and I moved back home and attended CSU San Marcos and finally earned my Bachelor of Arts degree.  College was so much fun and I really value the time I spent at Chico; I made many friendships that are still important to me today.  My first job out of college was working for Penske Truck Leasing and it taught me a lot, but I was not happy in sales.  I wanted to teach.  I began teaching at Westmont Elementary in Pomona.  The fourth grade was great and the year flew by.  The next year I taught 5th and then 6th grade the following year.  I really enjoyed 6th grade and stayed in 6th for many years.  I moved south to teach at Terra Cotta Middle School in Lake Elsinore because we had our first child and the drive from Canyon Lake was too far.  I had 6th and 7th graders for math, language arts, social studies, and science.  It was a super busy year.  The next year I taught 6th-grade math and really enjoyed it.  I transferred to the Romoland District and taught 6th-grade language arts.  The following year I was able to get into a 6th-grade math position and stayed there for 6 years.  I was able to teach 7th-grade math for several years also which was a blast!  The 6th-grade teachers moved back to the elementary schools while the new middle school was being built and I had a lot of fun.  I stayed at Mesa View for six years and even brought my own two children there.  After my son finished 5th grade I moved back to the middle school and happily teach math to 7th and 8th graders.  I have taught for twenty-two years and have found the saying, "Effort equals results" to be very true.
