Social Studies/History

Ed Romeo, History
Edward Romeo grew up in West Sacramento, California and relocated to Redding in 1996 where he owned a small manufacturing business. The appeal of the Northstate hit hard, and he decided to leave the business world in 1999, but wanted to remain in the Northstate. Edward decided to complete his undergraduate degree at CSU, Sacramento with the intention of returning to the Northstate as an educator. He completed the teacher credentialing program through Simpson University in 2003, and worked as a substitute teacher, and summer school teacher, for the Shasta Union High School District until hired full-time for the Fall River Joint Unified School District as a high school social science teacher for the 2004-2005 school year. Mr. Romeo enjoys all things outdoors. Mountain biking, boating, hiking, fishing, hunting, kayaking, and gardening are the kinds of activities that drive his passion for the Intermountain area of Northeastern California.  


Eric Zimmerman, Social Studies
I was born and raised in Denver Colorado until I moved to the beautiful Fall River Valley when I was 13 years old.  I graduated from Fall River High School in 1997.  I attended Linfield College in McMinnville Oregon where I received my Bachelor of Arts in History (2001).  After working a variety of different jobs, in different locations, I decided to go back to school to become a teacher.  I received my teaching credential and Master of Education in Cross Cultural Teaching from National University in 2004.  For the following two years I lived and worked in Japan as an English instructor at Aeon Corporation.  It was while living in Japan where I met my wife Yoshiko.  I started working for Fall River High School in 2006 where I have been since.
