Degrees and Certifications:
My family moved the Bay Area when I was two and I grew up here going to local schools. At San Jose State University, I received my bachelors in Liberal Studies, a diversified major for K-8 instructors. I continued there for my teaching credential and masters in education. Teaching at Faria Elementary has given me the privilege of working as a team to deliver instruction to eager students. Giving students the skills needed for success is very rewarding. I am glad to be a part of one od CUSD’s alternative programs. When I am not teaching, I enjoy watching or listening to Giants baseball, listening to music, reading, and fly fishing with my wife.
