I really love seeing the ‘a-ha’ moments with the kids as they’re connecting things they’re learning or have seen before when I share knowledge about different plants and animals.
It’s always a trip down memory lane coming back to the schools, going into classrooms, and meeting with the teachers and staff.
We’re trying to get kids out of their comfort zone and have some fun while staying safe.

Learning both Spanish and English helped me understand who I am as a Hispanic person born in the US, and it helped me grow more as a student.

I help students teach each other about taking care of themselves and their wellness.
I grew up in the Mission and with the James Lick community, and there’s a big sense of pride that I’m able to give back to the community that helped raise me.
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.
