I am happy to be recognized for my hard work on behalf of the families of Acaciawood! My desire is to serve the school community, to make it a better place for the students, and to learn how to be the best teacher I can be.
In my math classes, I believe that regular quizzes and tests with fast feedback keeps students motivated to stay on top of their studies. Since there is an assessment nearly every week, it doesn’t give students the opportunity to procrastinate very much. I also try to give students who I see as struggling more personal help and encouragement.
This is my 12th year teaching at Acaciawood. Since our school is very small, I have had many opportunities to contribute to decision-making that affects the direction of the school. I have helped with the improvement of technology, introduction of new AP courses, production of the senior banquets, and strengthening of the high school science and math department. I love being able to contribute to the overall improvement of the school. I have learned to always be thinking about ways to improve the school, to not be satisfied with the routine of my teaching job, and to get excited by the endless possibilities of new ways to do things.
I really appreciate getting to teach the 11th-12th graders because I think I can help them learn important habits for college if I push them in my Physics, Precalculus, and Calculus classes. These are subjects I actually enjoy myself, so it is not difficult for me to teach them. What is challenging to me is making the subject enjoyable and interesting for my students. I gladly take this challenge because my effort will directly help my students in just a few years. This is not to say that I don’t enjoy teaching the younger students. I also appreciate their enthusiasm and energy, and I am learning to harness it to become an effective 6th grade science teacher and 7th grade computer literacy teacher.
On December 12, 2018, the Science Fair students presented their projects during the Upper School Assembly. The four Science Fair students who presented were Kelvin Lee, Eliana Nava, Ken Chow, and Jonathan Rosario. The four students will go to county level.
