Peter B. Thorne

Welcome to my web page! My name is Mr. Peter Thorne and I am the 8th grade RSP teacher for periods 2, 3 and 4. I am also teaching the REACH program (for English/Comp Lit) for high school SDC students in my first and sixth period.

My goal is help each one of my students be successful throughout their school years and beyond! I enjoy getting to know my students and families on a personal, academic and vocational basis. I follow each student's IEP closely and help implement accommodations and modifications to their mainstream curriculum to insure success in school!

I have very high expectations for my students and their families and believe in the old adage, It takes a village to raise a child. When all of us - teachers, parents, relatives, friends, neighbors, etc. work together as a village, we can help influence our children in a positive manner and guarantee success for them! Our children need our help to develp them into happy, healthy, productive young adults that are active, beneficial members of our community.

In my personal life, I am married to my wife Misty and have a beautiful little girl named Malia. I enjoy surfing, painting, reading, cooking, gardening, riding my beach cruiser around Newport, playing and listening to all types of music and being outdoors. My wife and I own a little restaurant in Newport Beach called The Sol Grill where I work in the evenings and weekends. Please feel free to come and join us for dinner sometime!
