Mr. Sanfilippo



   I am Mr. Sanfilippo and I have been a teacher in San Jose since 2007. I grew up in San Jose and graduated from Gunderson High School. I then went on to Santa Clara University where I graduated with dual degrees in History and in Comparative Politics in 2006. Afterwards I earned my Masters of Education and teaching credential and have been working with students in history and government ever since. 


     By goal for teaching is to create students that will be informed, hard working, and self advocating as adults. I believe that all students are deserving of respect and that a teacher should teach by example. My students should feel welcomed in my class and that they should never be embarrassed to ask for help or to let their teacher know that they just do not understand.


     If for any reason you need to contact me, please use my direct school e-mail at It is the best way to get to me, since I always check my mail. I will respond within 48 hours, not including weekends and holidays.
