Mr. Micheal Wellington
My name is Micheal Wellington, and I have been in an education setting since 2005. I began my education journey working with kids with Autism, ranging from ages 3-13 in a school, as well as home setting. I was a Social Studies and Physical Education teacher at Alemany High School in Mission Hills California, from 2007 until 2020. There, I was the Head Track and Field Coach, where I was able to send 24 athletes to college in 7 and a half years. As a family driven team we were able to win several league, regional, and runner up plaques on the boys and girls teams. We were able to win 17 Individual championships at the regional level, and we set over 30 school records. In addition, I have coached Track and Field at the Junior College and NAIA Level as well. I coached football at every level, Freshman to Varisty for 8 seasons. under the lengendary offensive mind, Dean Herrington.
I am a published author of the book "Fathered While Fatherless," and because of those experiences growing into adolescence, it has propelled me to attempt to be everything I wanted as a teen male, toward the kids that I teach and coach; hard, but understanding; comforting, but expectation driven; disciplined, but able to walk with them through the journey. I hope that you all see that as you get to know me.
I am excited to be back in the classroom after an entire year. I will be teaching Government and Economics. I have been recently promoted to Head Coach for the Lady Panthers, due to the sudden loss of the Great Coach Maurice Hill.
I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a degree in Psychology, where I also was a 110 hurdler for the Matador Track and Field Team. I earned my Master's Degree in Education from the University of La Verne, also in California. I am also certified as a USATF Level 2 Coach, Specializing in Sprints, Hurdles, and Relays.
I am married to one of the greatest designers in the world, Houstina Summers, and we have 1 child, Grace.
