Interviewing Hermosa Beach School District’s Superintendent Bruce Newlin was quite a special experience.

We asked him many questions about his teaching history and his thoughts on education. 

The two of us found out that he started his first teaching job in 1959. He realized that he was making an impact on kids, and also inspiring them.

After recognizing his wonderful gift, he began his journey to becoming a superintendent. 

Newlin decided if he taught principals and teachers what he knew the schools could be a better learning place for everyone. 

One of the questions we asked was "Why did you choose to be superintendent at Hermosa Valley?" He told us that Hermosa Valley really stood out to him because it had a positive environment and friendly kids.
