My Biography

     I was born and have lived in Southern California most of my life. I went to and graduated from the public school system in Long Beach (LBUSD). After graduating high school, I started to work at a local amusement park while going to Cerritos College. While working at the local amusement park, I met my future wife, who also is a teacher. Once I received my Associate in Arts degree form Cerritos College, I continued my education at CSUF. I acquired my Bachelor of Science degree in Child and Adolescent Development. After graduating from CSUF, I went on to get my teaching credential in Mild/Moderate special education. I completed my Master of Science degree in Education (with the focus of Special Education) from CSUF in May of 2009.  I went back to CSUF during the 2010-2011 school year to get my the Added Authorization for Autism Spectrum (AAAS) added to my current Mild/Moderate Special Education Credential.

 

     As for my personal life, my wife and I welcomed a daughter into our family in August of 2007 and a son in August of 2009.  My daughter will be going into the sixth grade, and my son will be going into third grade.  Both are currently students at a school in our wonderful Brea Olinda Unified School District.  My wife, daughter, and son mean the world to me and brighten up my life each and everyday.

 

     I am very familiar with the Brea Olinda Unified School District. I completed two semesters of student teaching at Mariposa Elementary School (one in 6th grade general education classroom and the other in RSP/SDC setting). This year (2019-2020) will be my 14th Year teaching at Laurel Elementary Magnet School. I look forward in helping students meet their fullest potential in all academic areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites the sharing of ideas.

Check student's Accelerated Reader progress from home.

Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s):

Your child is using a computer software program called Renaissance Place (also known as Accelerated Reader or AR) at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect. Renaissance Home Connect is a fun, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand web-based interface that allows your child, you, and the teacher to share in the educational experience by viewing progress in certain Renaissance Place programs while outside of school.

 

I would strongly recommend using Renaissance Home Connect at home to monitor your child’s reading progress.
