Samuel Hindi has taught at Corona High School for six years. He has taught nine years in public schools and 21 years in a private school. Hindi has taught at Vaughn High School and Watchtower Educational Center in Patterson, N.Y.
After studying at University of New Mexico in electrical engineering, Hindi attended Grand Canyon University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in education.
Hindi chose the education profession because he has always loved the classroom and the learning environment. His least favorite thing about teaching is not having the time to do all that he would like to in the classroom.
His favorite part of teaching is the challenge of teaching a complicated topic in an easier way to understand. Hindi’s favorite part about Corona Schools is the students and staff.
“The students and staff are a great group of people to work with!” Hindi said.
He graduated from Vaughn High School which is not much different in size from Corona. Hindi participated in track and basketball. He was a four time state champion in shot put and discus and also broke the state record.
Hindi’s advice to the students he teaches is to stay curious and never stop learning. His favorite past-times are camping, traveling, droning and cooking. He enjoys watching Chopped on the Food Network channel. His least favorite food is kibbee which is a type of Lebanese meatloaf.
