Mr. Jon Oates

My name is Jon Oates and I teach Media Production, Advanced Media and Media Management.

A little bit about me:

I grew up in the area, and now I live up in the foothills with my wife and 4 kids. Before coming to West Park, I taught Music/Drama and Media at the middle school level for 20 years. I have always been heavily involved in theater and music; I even did a short stint in professional theater here in Sacramento before going and getting my B.A. in Music Education from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. 

In my free time I love relaxing on the back deck with my wife, playing piano/guitar, helping my kids with their sports, music and theater adventures and fly fishing when I can.  As a family, we are very involved in our local church, and we love  all things food. I've had the privilege of traveling all over the world and I cherish the opportunity to explore new cultures and foods.  I'm really excited to be here at WestPark and I look forward to teaching you or your student.
