Welcome back Bruins!
My name is Mr. McLaughlin and I am the proud 8th Grade Homeroom teacher for 2018-2019! I am excited to be a second year member of the St. Charles community. Like last year, I will teach 7th/8th grade Math and Social Studies. I will also coach girls and boys volleyball.
I am a Huntington Beach native where I grew up playing basketball and volleyball. For college, I attended George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia and played mens volleyball for the Patriots. After graduating I spent 2 years serving inner-city schools in Los Angeles with a non-profit called City Year. This summer I earned my Masters in Secondary Education from Loyola Marymount University.
On a personal note, this year is very special because I will be getting married in July! When i'm not teaching, grading, or coaching I will likely be planning the wedding. I will also enjoy the outdoors: playing beach volleyball, surfing, snowboarding, and exploring our National Parks.
I look forward to another great year!
