 Back to School Night Videos:  Social Studies 7, Social Studies 8  

My name is David Bussen and the 2021/2022 school year is my 6th year teaching  social studies and my 3rd year teaching at Thompson Middle School.

I grew up and attended school in Temecula, moving to San Diego to complete my degree in Social Sciences at San Diego State University. I followed that up with a Single Subject Teaching Credential and Masters degree from the University of Redlands. From there, I spent three years teaching at JL Stanford in Palo Alto, CA. I am happy to be back teaching in my hometown once again. In my spare time time I enjoy hiking, running, playing and watching soccer, and exploring Southern California with my wife and my dog.
