David Schantz enjoyed a varied career before coming to Desert Marigold High School. After studying accounting at the State University of New York, David received a Masters degree in Chinese Medicine.
In addition to operating a private acupuncture clinic, he worked for a number of years as a stock broker at a major brokerage firm. After leaving the corporate world, David became certified to teach mathematics and has taught math, physics, economics and sustainability at DMHS. When he’s not teaching, David is probably gardening or just enjoying watching bugs or birds or simply the clouds floating across the blue sky.
