About Ed Larkin

Greetings! I am Ed Larkin, Learning Director at Corcoran High School. In 1979 I was born at Sacred Heart Hospital in Hanford. I am still a Kings County resident to this day. After graduating CSU Stanislaus in 2002 (BA History) I started to substitute teach in Hanford, Lemoore, Avenal, and Corcoran. I started teaching full time at CHS when I was 25 years old. I met my wife in Corcoran, she is a teacher at Mark Twain Elementary School. A little over ten years after my first year in the classroom, I took a position in the Counseling Department at CHS. I absolutely love my job. Every interaction I have with young people brings tremendous opportunity to affect positive change in our community; I take that responsibility very seriously. Lastly, I am thrilled to be a part of so many peoples' lives. If there is anything ever that I can do to help, please contact me. Ed Larkin

About Tiana Ring

Hello CHS Panthers! My name is Ms. Ring. I was born and raised in Bakersfield. My interest in math began in high school when I became obsessed with predicting race times and creating race goals using data and formulas I had created. Then, senior year I had an amazing teacher who inspired me to use my skills and become a teacher. So, I attended California State University, Bakersfield on an athletic scholarship and graduated in 2009 with a B.S. in Mathematics. I received my single subject credential in 2010. This is my 8th year of teaching, 7th at CHS. I've taught Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Math 1, Math 3, Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus. It's my goal to inspire students the way my teacher inspired me.
