Eighth Grade

Our 8th grade homeroom teacher - 

Mr. Volenec


I was born in Lawrence Kansas. I grew up in the suburbs of Kansas City in the small community of Lake Quivira Kansas. After graduating from Shawnee Mission North West High School I enlisted in the Army and served in Germany with the 1st Armored Division. Following my enlistment I moved to the Bay Area before attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where I met my wife Irma who is also a junior high teacher and librarian. I graduated from Cal Poly with a Bachelors of Architecture. In 1996 my wife and I moved from Redondo Beach to Concord where my wife had grown up and still had family. I have been a member of the St Agnes Parish ever since. I have three children, two of which are students at St Agnes. I have been the junior high math coordinator and math teacher since 2005. I love teaching math, working with junior high students and being a part of the St Agnes community.
