Mr. Justin Overstreet hails from the golden state of California. Originally born in Panama (although not actually Panamanian, no matter what he says), Mr. Overstreet grew up in the Mojave Desert of Southern California, before moving to Northern California for college. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Davis, with a major in Political Science and minor in Economics.
Following college, Mr. Overstreet pursued a career in the legal field, and received American Bar Association (ABA) certification as a paralegal from California State University, Hayward. After finishing his certification process, Mr. Overstreet worked as an Immigration Specialist at the law firm of Jackson & Hertogs LLP in San Francisco, California for nearly five years, where he was responsible for helping businesses and individuals submit immigration petitions with the U.S. government.
In the summer of 2015, Mr. Overstreet returned home to Sacramento to accept a position teaching IB and World History at Inderkum High School. Go Tigers!
In his spare time, Mr. Overstreet enjoys playing basketball, baseball and golf, and spends way too much time following politics.
Looking for a change in his life and career, Mr. Overstreet then decided to return to school for his teaching certification, earning a Social Science credential and Master of Arts degree in Education (Curriculum & Instruction) from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, California. While completing his studies he was also the recipient of a Fulbright-Hayes scholarship to visit various cities in China with a group of distinguished California educators.
After teaching World History, U.S. History, U.S. Government and Economics at various schools in the U.S., in the Fall of 2012 Mr. Overstreet joined the staff at the Yucai High School International Program as the Natural Science teacher, and in 2013 assumed the role of Social Science teacher. His courses at YCID included topics in U.S. and World History, Politics, and an AP Economics preparation course for Gao San (12th grade) students.
