Jeff Pedroza

Jeff Pedroza (564-6514, D-425): Psychology 100 Introduction to Psychology, Psychology 250 Introduction to Abnormal Psychology, Psychology 100 Introduction to Psychology-Asian American Emphasis.
B.S. & M.S., Eastern Michigan University.


My name is Jeffrey J. Pedroza and I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.  Some early highlights from my youth have been being shot in the head (a bb gun), pushing a robber through the front of K-Mart department storefront window (he was stealing shoes) and reading comic books.  From an early age I was interested in the character Spider-man.  Spider-man represents the themes of guilt, power and responsibility.  I soon realized that I am Spider-Man.  Knowing this has been good and bad.  I attended Eastern Michigan University and obtained my B.S. in Psychology (1984) and a M.S. in Clinical Psychology (1987).  I have approximately 20 years experience as a therapist (10 of those in private practice) but I retired when I moved to California (1997).  I have been teaching Psychology for over 20 years.  I have taught at Lansing Community College (Lansing, MI), Brooks College (Long Beach, CA), Golden West College (Huntington Beach, CA) and currently as an Associate Professor at Santa Ana College. I teach 16 sections a year of Psychology 100 (Introduction) and Psychology 250 (Abnormal). My hobbies include scrapbooking, watching movies, weed (pulling them!), photography, museums, finding cool antiques/collectibles at flea markets, listening to good music, reading cool classics, Star Trek, Sherlock Holmes, traveling, building Lego sets and spending time with my family.​
