Get to know me!

About Me: I am originally from California but moved to this amazing State of Arizona in 2006. I am a Husband and a Dad to 3 adult children, plus I am “Papi” to 6 grandchildren. I love sports and can still play golf when I can sneak away in my free time. I have been in the Teaching Profession since 1985. Even though this is my first year at Dream City Christian Schools, I have been a member of the DCChurch for over 2 years. I look forward to seeing what God has up His sleeve this year for me and the students I will be teaching about the Bible, God, Jesus and Salvation. Not only is this year a new beginning for me, but excited to be on the front lines of teaching apologetics to young minds to defend their faith in a world that sorely needs a “heart transplant” to thrive and survive for future generations to come.

Background: I have obtained 2 Bachelor of Arts degrees from Point Loma Nazarene University: Spanish Studies and Liberal Studies (Education). I also am licensed in Life, Health, Disability,  Property and Casualty Insurance in the State of AZ.

How did I start teaching: I currently teach Bible Theology classes for both Jr. High and High School. I am credentialed in Spanish & English as a Second Language. I have taught for over 30 years.
I chose teaching because I am passionate about kids knowing and loving the Word of God.

Teaching chose me. My goal was to go into business. I was redirected to enter the teaching profession because I wanted to coach basketball and baseball. I played collegiate baseball and felt a calling to become a coach first which lead me to enter the teaching profession. Since my first language is Spanish- I was hired to teach foreign languages (ironically, I taught English to non-English Speakers and Spanish to non-Spanish speakers) in grades k-12.

Favorite Subjects: Spanish

Favorite Bible Verse: 2 Timothy 1:7 For God does give us the Spirit of fear, but of Power and of love and of a Sound Mind.

Fun Fact: Here’s a fun fact: Did you know that the word “tardy” in English for “late to class” comes from the word “tarde” in Spanish- which means “late.”
