William Evans joined Saddleback College in December of 2009. He teaches in the Saddleback College Education department and specializes in special education protocol and procedures within the California public school system. Having taught in the Long Beach Unified School District in a variety of both general and special education settings for the past 14 years, William brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to be shared with all Saddleback Students interested in pursuing a career in education.
Additionally, having been a student himself, while working full time at the beginning of his career, William understands the rigors of working and going to school concurrently. For this reason, his classes emphasize a lot of in-class activities geared toward learning while at school. Outside class assignments in his courses are setup to be interactive and enlightening emphasizing learning through experience.
A father of two daughters ages 13 & 16 who truly are the "light of his life", William enjoys spending time with his family in his spare time. Among the activities his family enjoys together are traveling, sports and spending time with friends and loved ones.
