Mr. Paul Breckon
Hello, Vista Families!
Originally from Illinois, I was first bitten by the teaching bug during my Air Force career. After being stationed in the Springs from 2004-12, my family and I settled here permanently in 2016.
My second career started by teaching English 121 at Pikes Peak Community College.
I began a long-term sub job at Vista in 2017 and was hired full-time in 2018. I challenge my students to improve as readers, writers, and thinkers. Whether students go on to college, the military, trade school, or straight to the workforce, they need to be able to communicate effectively and make sense of the world around them.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my wife and daughters. My other hobbies are long-distance running, following my favorite sports teams, and reading (of course). My favorite books include the Harry Potter series, Fight Club, and nonfiction such as A Night to Remember and In Cold Blood.
