This year, the ALC was privileged to snag Mr. Alan Albright as the teacher for the Teacher Education class. This is the first year we are offering this class, and the teacher for it couldn't be a better fit.
Mr. Albright brings so much enthusiasm and energy to his class, that the students love to be there every day.
We knew that Alan Albright had experienced many things in his life but we were somewhat shocked to learn just how many things he has accomplished thus far.
Just to name a few of the many:
Alan Albright was a 2 time California State Champion. He was a high school National Freestyle Wrestling Champion and then took 3rd in the world 1971 in Tokyo, Japan.
He went to college and received the All-American Wrestler at Oklahoma State University.
