Degrees and Certifications:
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.
