About Me

My name is Matthew Carlos Cardona, to students I am Mr. Cardona and to athletes Coach Cardona. I was born and raised in the Central Valley of California near Fresno, CA. I lived near Fresno until I moved away to attend college at Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, where I received my Bachelor's Degree and Teaching Credential. I have taught at Santee since Fall 2015 and I am very excited to continue to be part of the Santee Community as both a teacher and coach of our basketball team. My passion is teaching students to be the best they can be and trying to be a model of hard work. I believe that every student can learn and achieve with hard work and a desire to reach their own goals.
“The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.” -Kobe Bryant
