I look forward to getting to know and working with each of your hard-working little learners. I am a 2nd career teacher, that has extensive knowledge from the tech industry. I previously worked for Barnes and Noble’s NOOK Media, specifically with B&N’s mobile reading applications and Nook devices.
I am married to my beautiful wife Marivel. We have three daughters; one in middle school, one in 1st grade, and the last going into kinder. We are also welcomed our baby boy last December. My family takes up most of my time, but some hobbies that I enjoy are golfing, attending concerts, and being involved with Santa Rosa Academy athletics. Go Rangers! I rediscovered my love for reading during my tenure at Barnes and Noble, which I enjoy on my down time as well.
I have lived in the Temecula Valley area most of my life. I went to Chaparral High School and graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in Human Performance with a minor in Biology, from Union College, which is located in Kentucky, in 2007. I completed my teaching credential and Masters of Arts degree in Learning and Teaching at the University of Redlands.
It is my mission to instill a thirst for knowledge in my students and the love for reading. I attempt to teach with motivation, inspiration, and encouragement. I look forward to seeing your student thrive in my classroom throughout the year.
I can't wait for this year to get underway and partner with your family to make this year a success.
