Mr. Conklin holds a Bachelor's degree from CSUSM, class of 1999.  He gained an internship opportunity in MVUSD directly afterwards while working on his teaching credential through CSUSM.  He then stayed on afterwards at Thompson Middle School for the last 23 years. 

Mr. Conklin has extensive graduate level experience in Science and History, particularly in Geology and Archaeology.  He has also spent summers in professional development at UCLA.  He is well versed in Common Core, and keeps up with the latest pedagogy in teaching and learning.  

"I absolutely love history and science, reading and writing, and helping students learn valuable knowledge and life skills.  I have a work hard, play hard mentality.  I will work my hardest for your student to not only LOVE language arts and history, but to excel in it to the best of their ability."
