Middle School Religion and History
Greetings! My name is Kale Wiik. I am pleased to introduce myself as the new History and Religion teacher at St. Mary Star of the Sea. Born and raised in San Diego, I currently live in Oceanside with my wife of four years, Amanda. After graduating from Cathedral Catholic, I pursued my education at Chapman University, earning my undergraduate degree in Psychology. Recently, I completed my Masters in Middle School Education at Liberty University, where I also obtained a single subject Social Science credential. During my educational journey, I gained valuable experience in religious schools while completing my student teaching at Santa Fe Christian in Solana Beach.
As an educator, I prioritize a student-centered approach, empowering learners to develop their knowledge and faith. I look forward to being a part of each student's educational journey and supporting them in reaching their full potential. Outside of school, I enjoy surfing and spending quality time with Amanda, hiking, fishing, and playing with our dog, Gator.
I am excited to start this new chapter at St. Mary Star of the Sea and contribute to the school's rich educational tradition. I hope to inspire growth, curiosity, and a deeper understanding of history and Catholicism. It is an honor to be a part of this wonderful community, and I am eager to meet all of you.
