David Backman

Welcome to my page.  My name is David Backman, and I am thrilled to be working at my Alma Mater.  This is my 25th year of teaching.  I currently teach Special Education U.S. History, World History, and Introduction to Film.  The best part of my job is working with the students. 

I grew up in Antioch and graduated from AHS in 1991.  After graduating, I attended Sacramento State University and graduated in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.  My first teaching experience was as a substitute in the Antioch Unified School District.  In 1997, I was hired as a full-time teacher at Prospects High School.  In 2000, I moved over to AHS.  I have also taught at Live Oak High School in the district. It's great to be a Panther!
