Biography

Hello! Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Andy Brennan and I have taught at Santa Rosa High since 2000. My main focus is World History and Government, but I also occasionally teach Economics. I earned my Bachelors in History at Sonoma State University, where I also earned my teaching credential. I went on to earn a certification as a National Board Certified Teacher and have worked as a mentor for new teachers. I absolutely love teaching and working with students! You can click on the menu to the right to see a more in-depth explanation of my teaching philosophy.
