Welcome to my Teacher Website

  • James Fanshier
    Math & Physical Education Teacher
    Mr. Fanshier's First year at Folsom Lake High School was in 2016.  He previously taught at Mitchell Middle school for 15 years and started teaching in 1997 in San Jose, CA.   Coach Fanshier has coached wrestling, volleyball, swimming, soccer, kickboxing & Mixed Martial Arts in the past and competed in high school & community college wrestling and volleyball.  He represented the USA at the 2003 WuShu World Games in Chinese  kickboxing, and earned recognition in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. During his years of teaching at Mitchell Middle School was the teacher of the year in 2005 and then again in 2012.  In 2012  was the inaugural teacher of the year for the Rancho Cordova Police Activities League.  It is his belief no one rises to low expectations. Students should make reasons to be successful rather than make excuses to be unsuccessful. I expect all students to have pride in themselves, and their school, and give their very best effort at all times.
    Please address Mr. Fanshier as "Mr. Fanshier", "Fanshier", "Coach", "Coach Fanshier", or "Sir"  not "Dude", "Buddy", "Mr. Nichols", or "James".
