My name is Casey Burrill, I grew up here in the SCV and will never leave. I graduated from Hart HS, played baseball at USC, and spent some time in the minor leagues with the Atlanta Braves. I earned a business degree form USC with a marketing emphasis. Needless to say I am very passionate about my Alma Mater. I cheer for the Los Angeles Kings and take it hard when they struggle and cry tears of joy when they win!
My wife Kris and I have 2 children. One is a junior at Cal State Channel Islands University and the other is a sophomore at USC. We have 2 dogs named Jasper and Max. Plus two cats Bailey and Luc. My father taught for 34 years at Canyon HS and retired after teaching at Valencia HS. Mom taught for LA Unified school district for over 35 years. Teaching is the family curse. My brother Brady teaches math here at West Ranch and our sister teaches at Rancho Pico. I have a brother-in-law and sister-in-law who both teach at Valencia HS. I got my teaching start at Valencia HS and stayed for 2 years, then on to Saugus HS for 4, and was on the original staff at West Ranch back in 2004.
I coach baseball here at West Ranch with my brother and that consumes most of my free time. I am the original coach and love being on the field with the players.
I started a web design class named Home Page Production my second year at Valencia in 1998. I have been teaching a web design course ever since. We have recently changed the course to Web Development and have added a Web Development 2 . I love designing web pages and teaching the craft to my students.
I am excited to also teach AP Computer science Principals. 2016 was my first year teaching the course and it has been awesome! An amazing experience for any student interested in technology.
It will be another fun year!
