    Mr. Skiotes has vast and different experiences in business and education, using both in the classroom to help students achieve their goals. He teaches business classes at North High School in LA 51. Come by see all the Panda Bears in the room and on the wall, given by students he affectionately calls “Ta Mora”.   

    The business classes merge "real world" concepts with state-of-the-art technology to provide students with conceptual fundamentals and skills set to assist them in preparing for college, career, and life. I try to keep my teaching philosophies as simple as possible: "there is the power of a raging bull in simplicity."

    • Come to class,
    • Try your best, and
    • Learn something every day.

    I sponsor the screenwriting club where students learn how to write a movie script.

    Stop by, email, or call with any concerns or questions. I'll do my best to help anyway I can.
