My name is Casey Burrill, I grew up here in the SCV and will never leave. I graduated from Hart HS, played baseball at USC, and spent some time in the minor leagues with the Atlanta Braves. I earned a business degree form USC with a marketing emphasis. Needless to say I am very passionate about my Alma Mater. I cheer for the Los Angeles Kings and take it hard when they struggle and cry tears of joy when they win!

My wife Kris and I have 2 children.  One is a senior in high school and the other a sophomore in college.  My wife teaches PE at Placerita. We have a dog Jasper and three cats Ziggy, Bailey, and Luc. My father taught for 34 years at Canyon HS and retired after teaching at Valencia HS. Mom taught for LA Unified school district for over 35 years. Teaching is the family curse. My brother Brady teaches math here at West Ranch and our sister teaches at Rancho Pico. I have a brother-in-law and sister-in-law who both teach at Valencia HS. I got my teaching start at Valencia HS and stayed for 2 years, then on to Saugus HS for 4, and was on the original staff at West Ranch back in 2004.

I coach baseball here at West Ranch with my brother and that consumes most of my free time. I am the original coach and love being on the field with the players.

I started a web design class named Home Page Production my second year at Valencia in 1998. I have been teaching a web design course ever since. We have recently changed the course to Web Development and have added a Web Development sectionII . I love designing web pages and teaching the craft to my students.

I am excited to also teach Tech Foundations  this year and teach Google Docs and other important programs the students will use throughout their high school and work careers.

It will be another fun year!

Information Technology National Standards


INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY is radically changing the landscape of business and the global society. Once viewed as an area only for computer programmers, engineers, and scientists, the information technology field is now viewed as an indispensable resource for organizational and personal productivity—that is, for achieving an organization’s business goals, and for facilitating the attainment of an individual’s life and career goals.

Mastery of technology tools is a requirement rather than an option for enhancing academic, business, and personal performance. To prepare students to be successful in today’s global business environment, which is increasingly dependent on—and defined by—technology tools, educators must focus on the use of technology as a tool for facilitating business functions.

Accordingly, business educators should:

  • coordinate information technology instruction in business education and across the curriculum;
  • teach students to value information technology and the impact it has on their lives;
  • develop students’ ability to analyze, synthesize, evaluate, and apply technologies to solve problems, increase productivity, and
  • improve their quality of life;
  • foster the development of interpersonal and service quality skills;
  • encourage ethical, legal, and responsible behavior;
  • emphasize information technology as a common thread throughout all areas of business;
  • encourage students to respect intellectual property, personal privacy, and information security; and
    be catalysts for change.
