Meet AngeloMy students mean the world to me. I see the direct correlation between board decisions and student success rates, but advocating for students goes beyond the classroom. I encourage reform for programs such as special education, and champion increased community involvement so students have a well-rounded educational experience that is not "one size fits all."
My Education and Professional Background
I earned by bachelor of arts in Political Science from the University of Southern California and am currently working on my MBA from Touro University Worldwide. This is my 5th year as a professional educator, and my 4th at Somerset Academy Lone Mountain, a Nevada charter school. I've taught high school level Algebra I and Spanish I. In the middle school level, I've taught Foreign Language and World Geography. This school year, I'm teaching Early World Civilizations, Spanish, and Leadership. I act as the Community Service Director for our school, getting students actively involved in helping their community and understanding diverse cultures, in addition to working with the National Junior Honor Society.
My Educational Philosophy
As an educator, it is my passion to assist students in learning through vigorous explorations. I understand that our students are informed, innovative, intense, inquisitive, and inspiring. I strive to establish a global learning community that fosters and celebrates taking academic risks, maintain an environment that provides purposeful access to myriad tools and technologies to explore and expand ideas, and challenge our students to construct, evaluate, and communicate powerful connections between content areas and life. I consider myself partners with parents in our endeavors to provide students with experiences that challenge, reward, and build confidence that fuels them as lifelong learners.
