Mr. John Boyden

World History

World History II


John lives, works and plays in San Jose with his family: Janet, his wonderful wife of 33 years! (she also works at PFA) and their three amazing adult children (all graduates of PFA). John attended San Jose State University and received a BS in Mechanical Engineering. Besides working full time as an engineering project manager, John has used his interest in math and history to teach at PFA for the past thirteen years. One of John’s passions is working with kids of all ages serving in the hospitality ministry at church, and as a Children’s Supervisor with Bible Study Fellowship’s School Program. He loves teaching, playing the bagpipes, reading, running, backpacking and sailing. He dislikes giving tests, but enjoys seeing the faces of students who ‘get it!’ by the end of the semester.

One of his favorite Bible verses is:

““Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
