Mr. Steve Cornell



My name is Steve Cornell and I've had the privilege of teaching at Shadow Hills School in the Alpine Union School District since 1994. My first career was a restaurant manager. I then earned my teaching credential at Point Loma Nazarene College and upon graduating was immediately hired in AUSD. I have since taken numerous education classes at University of San Diego. 
I am passionate about both literature and science, so I am very fortunate to teach mainly those two subjects. I'm especially proud of the 4th and 5th grade science program I began developing in 1994 and continue to expand. I am doubly proud of our upper grade Pathways Discoveries program, which now includes Spanish dual language. My teaching philosophy is "Keep it interesting and memorable". 
Please feel free to email me anytime at, or check out my science pages on our program website,, in which you can also learn more about our Pathways Discoveries Program.
