Adrian Mison Fulay
I am a proud graduate of Loyola Marymount University and the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. I strive to engage my students in connecting questions of faith with the experiences of life.My main academic area of focus is the study of Scripture. In my free time enjoy cooking for friends, traveling the world with my wife, and taking care of our dog, Russell.
When I was four and my brother was seven, we got kicked out of the Episcopal Church (or “our church”) for having too much fun, thus cutting off my spiritual pursuit before it got off the ground. Between that day and my returning to school when I was forty, my alternative was to find spiritual truths in the great stories of the world. During those years I worked in a car wash at fifteen, worked in the wholesale and retail flower business, spent four years in the Coast Guard as a helmsman on an icebreaker, a weather forecaster, and an oceanographic tech, drove 18 wheelers long haul for ten years, concrete and construction vehicles for another nine, went back to school majoring in English Lit and Religious Studies while raising my son by myself, landing, certainly by some universal design, at Salesian, where I have been for the last twenty two years. All that I had done before Salesian was preparation, unknowingly, for my vocation as a teacher.
Dr. William Billy Heidenfeldt
William "Billy" Heidenfeldt, a Salesian alum (Class of '94), happily returns to classroom teaching after seven years of teaching and doing research on second language learning and teaching at UC Berkeley. Prior to that, he taught junior high English, religion, and American history in the Diocese of Oakland. When he's not helping students speak in new and exciting ways, he loves to cook spicy food, bicycle around the East Bay, listen to pop music, and spend hours at the table with family and friends.
