Hello, My Name Is...

Larry Yocum


Welcome to Mr. Yocum’s Website

My name is Larry Yocum and I am entering my twelfth year here at the Academy. When I first started we were just hoping everything would work out and we only had 70 students. Not only did we survive, but we have flourished as a school. It has been an honor and a priviledge to be a part of a unique school and watch it grow and flourish.  I am currently teaching United States History, World History, and Civics. 

I received my BA degree in Mayof 2000 from the California State University of Chico in Social Science and I received my teaching credential in 2001.

I have always enjoyed learning and I viewed teaching as an excellent opportunity to further the process and to share my knowledge with others.  History is a wonderful field to learn about and work in because there are so many things to explore and research.  It is impossible to learn about and cover every topic and history is always changing as we uncover new documents and make new discoveries.  These are some of the things that make history challenging and fun to learn about and teach.

When I'm not teaching, I am very active and enjoy multiple sports from snowboarding (see the pic!), baseball, football, basketball, golf, etc. etc. and I also enjoy camping and various other outdoor activities.
