My Philosophy
I believe that every child has the capacity to learn. I believe in equipping them with the tools they need to out and educate themselves for the rest of their lives.
My Community
The community is an ecclectic blend of agriculture meeting the demands of a city that is becoming more metropolitan. As a result, Fresno is experiencing some of the same issues that urban areas are experiencing. Retail businesses and restaurants dominate this particular area. Fresno has several art museums such as: The Fresno Metropolitan Museum of Art, the African American Museum, The Arte'Americas Museum, and The Art Museum. It is centrally located in California with quick access to the mountains, the ocean and everything in between.
My Environment
The vast majority of students we serve are classified as "at-risk". We offer core curriculum in addition to business, technology, art and performing art classes.
My Roles and Responsibilities
I've been really impressed with the work production of many of my students. I've watched some of them grow tremendously over the course of their semester and actually develop valuable skills that they can utilize for the rest of their lives.
