SORIN NEAGU - Teacher, Independence High School Automotive Transportation

I have been working in the Automotive field since 1981.

I started as an automotive mechanic and continued as an automotive technician,service manager, service consultant, state smog referee and as an automotive technology teacher.

Out of all of the above, I love teaching the best. I have been working as a teacher since 2010 at Independence High School in San Jose.

We have about 210 students enrolled in our Automotive Transportation program, and growing. We teach our students from basic vehicle services and maintenance to Welding, Forklift operation, Hybrid technology and Electric Vehicles. We have many industry partners like Lexus of Stevens Creek, VTA, Napa Auto Parts, San Jose State University Engineering, The Car Guy Channel and many more.

We educate, motivate, mentor and support our students to become successful.
