Mr. Rotblum
Welcome to my class!  My name is Mr. Rotblum and I have been working at Brea Olinda High School since 2002.  I teach AP European History and coach Swimming (Boys and Girls).  I earned my Teaching Credential and Master's in Education from Whittier College in 2002. In 1999 I graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and Religion.
Friendly reminder students should try to resolve their issues first, if the student and the teacher can not resolve the issue then the next step is to involve the parent.
