Mr. Bradley’s First Year at Mission

Ryley Prock
In typical Mr. Bradley fashion

My first impression of Mr. Clayton Bradley was that he looked young, and he didn’t dress like your ordinary teacher. Teachers usually wear something casual or sometimes a little dressed up. One thing about Mr. Bradley is that he always dresses like himself or his personality.  Mr. Bradley’s always wearing khaki pants, vans, and any hoodie on top. The first time I met Mr. Bradley, I didn’t picture him as the history teacher type. He looked more like a calm, cool person. He has a very outgoing personality.

I interviewed Mr. Bradley and found out a lot of new things. Mr. Bradley was born and raised in San Francisco, in Potrero Hill. He wasn’t always a history teacher. He was once a Spanish teacher and taught Spanish 1 and 2 as well as health and PE at SOTA Academy.

After learning a little bit more about what Bradley teaches, I learned about his own educational experience. He is a graduate of SFUSD. Mr. Bradley went to Buena Vista Horace Mann, Hoover and Balboa. Later, he attended Sonoma State, Ponte Ficus Chile where he studied history and Spanish.  Then he attended the University of San Francisco for his Masters. Mr. Bradley didn’t have a plan B. He always wanted to teach, and he always saw himself as a teacher. 

Mr. Bradley was asked if he was planning to stay at Mission High for a while and he said yes, because “I live closeby.” 

When asked how his first year at Mission High is going, Mr. Bradley said that he feels like there is a lot that he can improve. He feels like he’s done a good job so far, and he believes that there are still many things he can get better at and so can the students. 

Mr. Bradley was asked what he is passionate about at Mission. He said he is striving to get the students where they should be. 

“Seeing students succeed makes my job more satisfying.”
