Which New Teacher Are You?
Mr. Gabe Bitto

Milken is excited to welcome Gabe Bitto as the newest member of the English Department. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Bitto moved to Los Angeles six years ago and most recently taught at Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance. When Mr. Bitto is not teaching ninth and twelfth grade English, he enjoys playing the drums and running. Mr. Bitto’s biggest pet peeve is when people are too hard on themselves and are not confident in their own work.
Mr. Nathan Silver

Nathan Silver, born and raised in California, has had a life full of teaching and working as a librarian. Mr. Silver received his degree in Writing, and used it to teach English at the high school and middle school levels. In addition, Silver also taught philosophy for multiple years. He previously taught at a high school in Colorado, and began his career as a librarian 8 years ago at a prep school in Anaheim. Mr. Silver is very excited to be joining the Milken community, and explained that his Jewish heritage is very important to him, so he looks forward to working at a Jewish school. Mr. Silver says he is here to offer support to all Milken students, and hopes students utilize the library as a quiet place to learn and study.
Mr. Zachary Schmidt

Zachary Schmidt has been at Milken for the past two years working in the IT department. This year, however, he has accepted the opportunity to substitute in the Photography department. Before his time at Milken, Mr. Schmidt interned at AwesomenessTV and Viacom in addition to working at an IT desk at a university. Born and raised in Iowa, he began experimenting with photography as a wedding photographer after obtaining a degree in Digital Media. Outside of Milken, Mr. Schmidt enjoys playing board games with his friends and photographing food, of which his favorite is ice cream with as many toppings as humanly possible. Mr. Schmit posts culinary pictures on his instagram @thebestfoodis, which he encourages everyone to check out.
Ms. Heidi Eberle

Meet Heidi Eberle, a new addition to the Milken Math Department. An Oregon native, Ms. Eberle was a competitive gymnast and later coached the sport. She is such an avid fan of gymnastics that she named her daughter after her favorite Romanian gymnast, Emilia Eberle. When she was just four years old, Ms. Eberle was bit by a black widow spider and almost died. Ever since then, she has been terrified of the arachnids. Ms. Eberle and her husband are huge fans of everything Disney. They even danced to the song “At Last I See the Light” from “Tangled” at their wedding. She is excited to start teaching geometry, algebra, and precalculus at Milken this year. Be sure to welcome Ms. Eberle if you see her: she is often dressed in all purple and has red curly hair!
Alexander Mendez

Alexander Mendez grew up in the sparse desert areas of California along its border with Mexico. He is overflowing with a deep passion for history and learning that is obvious after just a short conversation with him. Throughout the increasingly unique interview, Mr. Mendez remained calm and pensive while continuing to surprise with his answers. He lived in Russia for a few years, so he is fluent in Russian. When faced with one horse sized duck or 100 duck sized horses, he would fight a horse sized duck because he wouldn’t have the heart to wrangle the miniscule horses. If a penguin walked through the door wearing a sombrero, he (the penguin) would say hola muchacho and be there to make friends. Mr. Mendez is incredibly even-tempered and unfalteringly kind, always searching for the best in people.
