Mr. St. Onge has been the teacher at Atwater Senior Academy for the past sixteen years. Before that, he taught Exploring Technology, Math Support, P.E., and Video Technology at Mitchell Senior Elementary for twelve years. This is Mr. St. Onge's twenty-eighth year of teaching in the Atwater Elementary School District.
Mr. St. Onge grew up in the panhandle of Nebraska and attended Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska where he played football and majored in education. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, he decided to move to a warmer climate and ended up in the Atwater/Merced area. Along with teaching, Mr. St. Onge has also coached football for the Merced College Blue Devils for a number of years starting in 1995. When not teaching, Mr. St. Onge enjoys playing golf, working around his house, attending different events, watching TV (including college and pro football), and working on his old 1956 Ford F100.
The biggest challenge Mr. St. Onge has working at Atwater Senior Academy is getting his students to see their own potential and to make the best choices for themselves and their future.
