My name is John Sturm. I'm a 3rd Grade teacher at Montague Charter Academy, a public charter school in the San Fernando Valley. I have taught for 35 years at the same school. In that school, I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades over the years. Instead of leaving the classroom to move onto administration, it has always been my goal to work directly with my students.
