Jeremy Occhipinti (Riverside class of 1994) grew up in Taylor before moving to San Diego and then Atlanta, where he earned his BS in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University. He is a certified teacher in Georgia and Oregon. From a young age, he has been passionate about music, culture, and teaching others. Since September 2000, Jeremy has been teaching and volunteering in elementary schools and early childhood centers around the world. His first overseas teaching experience was in India in 2001. Since that authentic experience, he has learned, taught, and created music in twelve diverse countries around the world, including China, Thailand and most recently, Saudi Arabia. Jeremy has learned so much from being an international schoolteacher over the past fifteen years. Traveling, teaching, learning, and a genuine interest in culture have been the basis for his character both as an educator and a person. In his free time, Jeremy loves to sing, play guitar and piano, write songs, hike, volunteer, practice yoga, cook and meet new people. He has been active in our community for the past ten years leading fundraising events.
