Welcome to Mr. Jura's website for students and parents. Here you will find information (updated weekly) on assignments and current events in the classroom.
Here's a little bit about me:
I was born and raised in California's Central Valley -- in a small farm town. My mother was an educator and my father's side of the family was involved in farming. I enjoy teaching and studying English, Social Studies, and a variety of other topics. I received a BA in Liberal Arts graduating cum laude from my program of study. Following college, I also attended law school. I also hold a Masters in American History. Prior to teaching I worked in the fields of hospitality management, brand management, finance, and corporate law.
I have a passion for educating our future leaders and hope to see that passion come through in my student's future success in college and career. I believe in never slowing and always growing. Our classroom is a safe place where you will be engaged, work on rigorous content, and be supported in your growth and development.
My door, email, phone is always open and available for both students and parents and I offer tutoring services before, at lunch, after school, or online multiple days per week.
I look forward to working with you and supporting your development during the school year.
