Why Mr. De Ocampo Teaches
I teach at Visitacion Valley Middle School because I love helping all my young students become wiser and smarter people! VVMS students are wonderful human beings! I know because this is my 13th year at VVMS! My students make me smile, are helpful, and inspire me to work hard for them. Math can help us understand many things in this world. So I hope that I can do a good job of showing my students how much math is important.
Professor Pattio has partnered with Visitacion Valley Middle School and other schools to offer math video tutorials on 6th grade math and other math topics.
Who is Mr. De Ocampo?
I, Mr. De Ocampo, am currently teaching four classes of 6th grade math and one class of Acceleration elective.
I have a lot of educational experience. I have been a 6th grade mathematics teacher at Visitacion Valley Middle School since August 2008. My previous educational experiences include volunteering in emergent bilingual and mathematics classrooms at Francisco Middle School and in a 5th grade classroom at Bessie Carmichael Elementary School. I have served in various educational, case-managing, and mentorship positions at an after school and summer program primarily serving Filipino and other low-income K-HS students in the South of Market Area of San Francisco since 2004.
I am a proud product of San Francisco schools. I was a student of several schools in the San Francisco Unified School District, including Lowell High School, Potrero Hill Middle School, Bessie Carmichael Elementary School, Starr King Elementary School, and Filipino Education Center. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics at San Francisco State University in 2005.
I am currently furthering my education at the City College of San Francisco.
