Eric Itow joined Da Vinci in 2013 and is excited to be Design’s chemistry teacher and resident geek. Eric graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Physiological Science and a minor in Language Teaching. While studying at UCLA, Eric was a performing member of Kyodo Taiko: the first collegiate taiko drumming team in the nation. Following his time at UCLA, Eric received his M.A. in Secondary Education as well as a Gifted Education Certificate from the Rossier School of Education at USC. This year, Eric will be serving as a co-advisor for both Design’s dance team as well as its senior committee. When he is not busy at work, Eric enjoys discovering new cuisines, visiting the happiest place on Earth, and dancing and singing (albeit not well). This self-proclaimed “Brujan” is happy to be a part of the Da Vinci family and is looking forward to a great year with the Class of 2020!
