Mr. Jonathan Lyons

Welcome to Home of the Padres!

I am thrilled to be joining the staff here at Carmel High School. I can't think of a better place to continue my career working to prepare young men and women for life after high school then this beautiful school and the absolutely gorgeous surrounding community. 

I recently moved here from Southern California where I was a teacher and administrator for over 20 years. I earned my Bachelors of Arts Degree from California State University, San Bernardino in Mass Media Communications with a specialty in Radio, TV and Film. I earned my Teaching Credential from California State University, Northridge with an emphasis on Social Science. My Masters Degree is in Educational Leadership from California Polytechnic University, Pomona. 

As a teacher I was actively involved as the Activities/ASB Director, Softball Coach and manager of the school's theater. This love for student activities has carried over into my administrative work where I have often found my greatest joy in watching students perform on the field, the court, or the boards of the stage. I am also a passionate supporter of the arts program and am always amazed at the talents students showcase when allowed to follow their own passions.

I am lucky to have the support of my family including my wife, who works as an author and my three sons who are now attending the Carmel Unified Schools. I am a lover of music and a avid fan of the Los Angeles Angels, the Lakers and the Anaheim Ducks (you can take the man out of SoCal but you can't take the love of his teams away.)

I look forward to working with the amazing students, staff and parents in our pursuit of constant and never ending improvement. Please feel free to stop by and say hi, the door is always open.
