I'm William Okura.
It has been my pleasure of teaching Exploratory Arts, Painting and Drawing and AP Studio for over nine years here at Santiago High School. I look forward to many more!
Working with the students here has been deeply rewarding. I've had the joy of seeing student artists stretching themselves technically, as well as emotionally to break through countless personal barriers. Whatever path my students choose for their future, I know they will take their developed skill and tenacity to pursue positive goals.
