Hello Students and Parents,
I would like to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year at the beautiful Nogales High School. I am entering my sixth year at NHS and I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you. I have taught most levels of math from Algebra 1 to AP Calculus AB. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a BS in Business Management and MA in Secondary Education, obtained my Business credential from Cal State Fresno, and this past year I completed the Master's program in Educational Administration from Hope International University.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as a manager and consultant in the retail, fast food, and other service industries. My teaching philosophy is to get students to understand the "WHY" by making connections to prior learning and to the real world. My goal is to prepare students to be successful after they leave high school by teaching them responsibility and organizational skills by focusing on Collaboration, Communication, Critical and Creative Thinking.
In my free time, I like to spend time with my wife and my dog, and somehow catch up with the Dodgers and Lakers.
Looking forward to meeting all of you. Please contact me with any questions.
“Success is due to our stretching to the challenges of life. Failure comes when we shrink from them.” – John Maxwell
