Steve Ingrum was born in the United States of America, nestled between the nations of Canada and Mexico. He is a proud graduate of Horace Mann Middle School, Crawford High and San Diego State University where he earned his BA and California teaching credential in history. He has been teaching the great students of CPMA since our inaugural year of 2001.Steve is not your average boring history teacher. In fact, he has a wide array of interests outside the classroom. In his spare time, you can find him at the local museums and monuments or even traveling to various points of historical interest around the globe! To unwind, he enjoys "spacing out" on the couch watching the History Channel or reading some exciting primary source documents or historical fiction. And each year, Steve gets together with all his crazy college buddies to reenact various battles and other key events throughout history!
