The Wolfpacket

Kevin Glavin
Kevin Glavin has been the Wolfpacket adviser for 7 1/2 years. “I enjoy serving as the Wolfpacket adviser, encouraging the dedicated students to achieve their vision of what a great high school newspaper should be,” Glavin said. "This paper is in its 89th year, and I'm happy to be a small part of keeping this incredibly important tradition going, as students continue to exercise their First Amendment rights. Each year, we have a new group of dedicated students, and they always bring new ideas to help us keep progressing." 

Mr. Glavin’s ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle; his surname can be traced back to the Gaelic Gláimhin, meaning “satirist.” He wishes he were more funny, as he's afraid he hasn’t lived up to the family name. Glavin grew up mostly in the Midwest, where he studied journalism, before changing majors and earning his BA in English and MAT in English Education from the University of Iowa. He has been honored to teach many amazing students over the past 22 years, at the elementary, high school, and collegiate levels, in the United States and abroad, but mostly in Claremont, California. He is currently at work on a detective novel called "The Lost Lenore," the first book in the "No Shirt Sherlock" series. In his free time, Mr. Glavin enjoys binging "Riverdale" on Netflix and traveling. This past summer, he took a cruise with his family of the Mediterranean Sea, embarking from Barcelona, Spain, then sailing to Gibraltar; Provence, France; Genoa, Florence, Pisa, and finally Rome, Italy, where he muttered the only Latin he remembered—“Veni, vidi, vici!”—before collapsing on the steps of the Colosseum.
