About Mr. Birch

I am a perfect example of how Del Oro Golden Eagles don't fly far from the nest.  I went to Del Oro in 1986-1988.  My dad was a minister who was transferred to Taft, California in the spring of my Sophomore year.  I finished my high school education at Taft.  I then went on to play football at St. Mary's College in Moraga and finished school at Sacramento State earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology in 1994.  

I began my teaching career in 1997 at DO.  Over my career I have taught a wide variety of classes.  I have a passion for Physical Education and I love my job.

I am married to my wife, Jennifer, who is also a Del Oro grad.  While at Del Oro she was named Girl Athlete of the year and received a Full-Ride scholarship to play softball at the University of Oklahoma.  She is a Social Studies teacher at Roseville High School for the last 20 years.    I have 3 awesome kids.  Andrew is 18 and a Freshman at San Diego State majoring in Aerospace Engineering.   Jacob, 16 is a Sophomore at Del Oro and plays Football and Basketball.  My daughter, Jenna, is 15 years old and is a Freshmen at Del Oro.  She plays Basketball and Softball and is on the DOTV Broadcast team.
