Philosophy

mY gOAL iS PREPARE ALL OF MY STUDENTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND BEYOND. I BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF ACTIVE, PROJECT BASED LEARNING THAT MIMICS REAL LIFE.  MY STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO WORK EVERYDAY TO BECOME THE BEST VERSIONS OF THEMSELVES. YOUR CHILD IS GOING TO LEARN THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING WELL ROUNDED. THEY ARE GOING TO LEARN TO WORK HARD TO BETTER THEMSELVES ACADEMICALLY, PHYSICALLY, AND SOCIALLY.

What Else I do 
 
   
I am The UIL Coordinator for my School. During my time with UIL our team has become very competitive and the largest team we have ever had. AT our last two competitions we averaged 85 participants. I directly coach our schools Impromptu Speaking, Modern Oratory, Social Studies, Duet Acting, and spanish Prepared Speech Teams. I also coach 7th and 8th grade Boys and Girls Cross Country. I also am the Head coach for OUr schools biggest and most active club called Rossfit. Nutrition and fitness play a vital roll in my life. Having had the OPPORTUNITY to share this with the students of  Ross and see the iMpact it has made in our three years of existence is what make my job so fulfilling. I was fortunate enough to learn proper coaching, programming, and techniques on weightlifting over the past five years from the coach who brought Crossfit to el paso. Under his direct instruction I learned how to properly coach various aspects of physical fitness including proper mechanics on lifts, plyometrics, GYMNASTICS, and Cardiovascular Endurance.
