About The Teacher

 Welcome, this will be my sixteenth  year as a middle school teacher. I am 
extremely excited to begin another great year at Summit Intermediate. This 
will be mytwelveth year at Summit as well as Etiwanda School District. My 
first four years where of teaching were in the Los Angeles Unified School 
District, which were great but the commute was too long! 
    I moved to Rancho Cucamonga in 2003, with the aspiration to teach in 
my 
community. After my first year at Summit I realized Etiwanda is my "home". 
I'm especially excited because my last child will be at Summit this year. 
Marisa will is a 7th grader!
 Eli and  Teo are high school students at Alta Loma, which is 
making me nervous and feeling old.

 I graduated from California State University Los Angeles in 2002 with a 
B.A. 
in Geography with a Multiple Subject Credential option. I received my 
clear 
Credential in July 2008.I received my Masters Degree in School 
Administration from Concordia University, Irvine in 2012.  

I have been happily married to my wonderful wife Giselle for sixteen 
years, 
and have three incredible children; Teo (15), Eli (14), and Marisa (12), 
and 
two yellow labs named Howie and Kodie. 

Aside from School and work, our family is involved in soccer pretty much 
year 
round. All three kids are involved in the local AYSO region and I have 
been 
coaching  teams for a few years now. I enjoy seeing some of my students on 
the field during the season. 

Mission For The Class

As we transition from our previous state standards into our Common Core 
standards, my goal for the year is to transition student thinking from 
linear 
thinking to critical thinking. With this in mind,our class mission is to use 
more technology in class and providing students with resources at home.
