Welcome to Mr. Japinga's class - Lakeview High School Social Studies Department
Hi, my name is Cody Japinga. I am currently in my tenth year of teaching at Lakeview High School in the Social Studies department. This year I am teaching both US History and American Government. I am also on the varsity football coaching staff this fall.
I graduated from Holland High School in 1999 and went on to Western Michigan University. I graduated from Western in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in History with a minor in Social Studies. I did my internship here at Lakeview in the spring of '03 and was hired in for the 2003-2004 school year. I also completed a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership last summer.
In my spare time I enjoy doing anything sports related. A lot of my spare time is spent coaching and working with athlete's in the weightroom. I also enjoy cheering for Michigan State, and any sports team from Detroit. I love being outdoors and enjoy camping and hiking.
