JOEY LOOMIS

Special Abilities Cluster

Please welcome back Joe Loomis to Edison High School.  Joe will be assuming the leadership role as the new Special Programs Administrator for the Special Abilities Cluster.  Mr. Loomis is a graduate of Cal State University San Marcos and the University of California Irvine.  

Mr. Loomis comes into this administrative role having taught fifteen years in the classroom–ten of which have been within the HBUHSD district at Westminster and Edison High School.  Throughout his time in the classroom, he has taught both mild/moderate and moderate/severe special education.  During his time in the SAC program, he taught students in the CORE and LINC programs.  Last year he stepped out of the classroom and served in a leadership position at Westminster High School to assist special education in curriculum development and program improvement. We are thrilled to have him back at Edison leading the SAC Program.

On a personal note, both he and his wife, Kelly, are proud graduates of Edison High School and have been lucky enough to live in Huntington Beach most of their lives.  There daughter attends kindergarten and is involved in competitive dance.  He wears the badge of “Dance Dad” proudly and can be seen on the weekends moving props during competition season.
