Mr. Michael De Grazia
I am happy to be the new Assistant Principal at First Avenue Middle School and I am looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year. My background: I started my teaching career in San Leandro, CA at Bancroft Middle School where I was a physical education teacher, athletic director, and coach of many sports. I then was Assistant Principal at Mt. Eden High School in Hayward, CA and most recently at Marshall Fundamental in Pasadena. I enjoy basketball, and since I am from the Bay Area, I am a Warriors fan. My favorite TV show is Suits. I am excited to meet all of the students that will be attending First Avenue.
First Avenue Middle School is committed to providing students the ability to participate in a number of activities inside and outside of the classroom. Along with academic classes, First Avenue has amazing drama, art, music, technology and home economics programs. We want students to be well rounded and prepared for high school and careers of their choice. We are also excited and looking forward to the sports programs that are offered for students after school. There are many opportunities that First Avenue offers for students and I am here to support all students with achieving their goals. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can make an appointment with the main office.
