Mr. Wilson was an elementary P.E. teacher for seven years before coming to Bernardo Yorba Middle School.

Wilson enjoys hearing how former students benefited from the skills they learned from his class. “It is very rewarding seeing former students and hearing how their experiences in my class helped them try new activities in high school and beyond.  I enjoy being able to introduce new activities like archery to students and see their excitement as they learn new skills.”
