Randy Hudson


I have a Bachelor of Science in Aquatic (fresh and marine) Biology from UC Santa Barbara, and a Master's Degree in Educational Administration. While at UCSB, I became very involved in marine and ecological research and worked as a UC research diver for Professors in a variety of environments from oil rigs, to reefs, and open ocean.   

After graduating from UCSB, I moved to Boulder, Colorado where I worked as an environmental consultant. As a consultant, I worked on environmental assessments of Superfund Sites. Superfund sites are considered by the EPA to be the most polluted areas in the United States. Most my work was spent performing toxicity tests on salmon and trout for the State of California, collecting and processing fish for lab studies in the Great Lakes region, and performing assessments for Native American tribes in the state of New York. 

After consulting for two years, I moved back to California to pursue a career in teaching. I have been teaching Science and coaching Academic Teams (currently the National Ocean Science Bowl or NOSB team) at Dana Hills since 1999.

My wife is also a teacher in the district (Malcom Elementary), and we have three children. We all enjoy camping, backpacking, SUP' ing, going to Baja, and just about any beach related activity you can do. In addition to teaching, I enjoy woodworking in my shop (my garage) building cabinets, built-ins, furniture, and cool stuff for my kids.


This page is designed as a resource for students enrolled in Mr. Hudson’s Biology, and Marine Ecology classes at Dana Hills High School. Here, you will find homework assignments, handouts, notes, study materials for tests/and quizzes,  your grades, and lots of helpful reference information. Please check back often for announcements updates!
