About Mr. Hochadel
I graduated from high school and went directly to UC Berkeley, also known as California because it is the first UC school. I played water polo for 2 1/2 years but had to stop playing due to an injury. While on the team, I played with several Olympians, my coach was the Olympic coach, and we won 2 Division 1 NCAA championships (ask me about my playing time during those games). I had an on-campus job setting up and mixing the sound for concerts and events that paid for my approximately $850 tuition each semester. As an English major, I took a Psychology in Literature class where we watched and analyzed the movie Carrie and a Circumpolar Peoples Anthropology class with a professor who dressed like Indiana Jones. Fun fact: Cal High’s fight song is the UC Berkeley fight song. GO BEARS! Currently, I live in Whittier with my wife and 3 children.
