Amy Carlin


I'm Amy Carlin, English, Psychology, Child Development, and Creative Writing teacher at Sunset High School. 
Ms. Souza and her four children

I grew up in San Diego; after graduating high school,  I headed to UCSB to earn my Bachelors Degree in English with a minor in Economics.  I returned to San Diego to get my teaching credential and Masters at Cal State San Marcos, and later my doctorate in Educational Leadership from UCI/UCLA.  My first teaching job was at Oak Crest Middle School, followed by San Dieguito Acadmy, Diegueno Middle School, Torrey Pines High School, La Costa Canyon High School and now, having taught for over 20 years in the San Dieguito District, I have found a happy home at Sunset. My time outside of school is spent raising my four children.  We enjoy soccer, volleyball, swimming, the beach, movies, food, and our friends and family.  Life is good!

 US History, American Government, Sociology, Cuisine

I have been teaching in the San Dieguito School District since 1991 and at Sunset since 1996. I have an MA from Point Loma University and a BA from UCSD. 

What I love about teaching (and about life) is that no two days are the same.  It's energizing and interesting to see what's in store at Sunset each day. The moment you step onto Sunset's campus you're welcomed to an atmosphere where people genuinely care and invest in one another. It is an honor to be part of the Sunset team working alongside our students as they reach beyond what's comfortable to take hold of what's possible. I am consistently impressed by the resilient spirits, bright minds and courageous hearts of our students. 

Whether at school or at home, I enjoy setting new goals for myself. I enjoy hiking, cooking, writing, entertaining and travel -- especially when I can share those activities with my favorite people - my family.
