Bio

Karl Grubaugh lives with his wife, Tanya, in Cameron Park. They have three children – Lauren (GBHS grad, UCLA grad, Fuller Seminary grad student), Connor (Ponderosa HS grad and UC Berkeley junior) and Garrett (Ponderosa HS junior). He has been a teacher for more than 30 years, and this is his 16th year at Granite Bay High. He’s also been an instructor at the University of Missouri and an adjunct journalism professor at American River College. In addition to teaching, he has 20-plus years of experience (mostly part-time, some full-time) as a newspaper reporter and editor and freelance writer and editor. When he's not in the classroom or advising the Gazette student newspaper, he works occasional shifts as a copy editor at the Sacramento Bee and does some freelance magazine/newspaper writing. He's been a high school and club swimming and water polo coach for many years; he was an assistant water polo coach at Ponderosa High for the four years his son played there. His bachelor's degree is in Social Science from the Harvard of the West, Sacramento State University. He holds a BA (Hons) in American Studies from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, and he has an MA in journalism from the University of Missouri. He's received some nice awards in his teaching and journalism advising career, as have his students. Perhaps most notably, in 2008, he was named the National High School Journalism Teacher of the Year by the Dow Jones News Fund.
