About Me:  My name is Jonson J Chin, and I am fortunate to be a member of the educational team at SAVA Elk Grove. In the three plus years I have been with SAVA I’ve had the wonderful experience collaborating with dedicated colleagues and students, in reaching our potential, to make each of us better people and better citizens. I was born in San Francisco, went to middle and high school in Portland, Oregon, and have lived in the Sacramento area for a long time. I have had a life-long passion for history in general, especially US history. After working in restaurants, grocery stores and construction, I decided to further my education. I earned a BA in history, a teaching credential and an MA in education from California State University, Sacramento.

Interests:  I love to read books, listen to music, building plastic models, driving my Datsun 240Z around aimlessly wasting gas and spending time with my wife, Engelica.
