About "Mr. Hartman"

“My high school math teacher from Modesto Adventist Academy (now Central Valley Christian Academy) was the math teacher here at UCA for many years. UCA had a last minute opening in their science department (late May), and he invited me to consider UCA. However, I was the science/math teacher as well as the registrar and the Computer Support person at San Diego Academy, and was not about to leave them in the lurch, so I did not even interview. UCA made do for another year and then called me again. After interviewing, my wife and I  fasted and prayed for several days about making the move. We did not have a clear answer, but came in faith. God provided the answer within 2 weeks of our arrival—our oldest son Paul.”

Mr. Hartman enjoys firefighting, biking, backpacking, and gardening. He has a BS in Chemistry from Pacific Union College, and lives on campus with his wife Lorna and his three sons.
