Alumni Spotlight: Jean-Paul Whittall

Jean-Paul Whittall, BA in Philosophy, Class of ’15

After earning a BA in Philosophy from Cal State Long Beach, Jean-Paul returned home to earn his Physics Teaching Credential from Cal State Sacramento. He began teaching physics in Davis in 2015, and completed a Masters in Curriculum Development in 2022. Jean-Paul has now taught at Davis Senior High School for seven years, is an active member of his local teaching community, and spends his free time perfecting cake recipes and playing Dungeons and Dragons. He is thankful for the education that he received at CSULB and frequently finds opportunities to apply his philosophy education in the physics classroom, to both the benefit and occasional consternation of his students.
