We Are SFUSD
I appreciate the small community here at Thurgood Marshall and getting to know everyone really well. We are like a family and we all love each other.
It’s important to me to be a Black male teacher in a school with lots of Black and Brown kids, so there’s a certain way I carry myself.
I love seeing the kids progress, get better at their skills, and find things to enjoy that will keep them physically active throughout their lifetimes.
By setting an example of hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude, I hope to encourage my students to become the best versions of themselves and to pursue their passions with confidence and enthusiasm.
I’ve had chance meetings with multiple former Hoover students, who as adults have told me how much they appreciated their middle school art classes and how it gave them an outlet to be creative and a way to express themselves.
Having a community that stands up for you and really has your back has been the best part of being part of the village.
What I love is seeing students take their skills to other places that I could not foresee, and learning from them.
My hope is to lift the capacity of schools so that we can further support the needs of our community based on what they want to see in schools.
I help out at Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary, where I went to elementary school, and I love giving back to my community and helping the kids grow.
I am creating the programs that I wish existed when I was a student in SFUSD.
This is a really great time to make sure our students are ready to be adults with personal finance education to help them make the right decisions.
Everyone from teachers, community partners, paraeducators, and our security team are willing and able to do what is necessary to support our kids and get their basic needs met.
My favorite part of my work is seeing how incredibly excited students get about the library, reading, finding out new things, and thinking critically.

I want to tell my peers to not give up on their goals. It’ll be worth it in the end to work hard now.
