4th/5th grade

 A Little About Me
I have been teaching in Brea for 30 years (I think, but who's counting). I have also taught at CSUF (Engineering Lab) and in Mexico (ESL, and Village Technology). Before all that, I worked as a Test and Design Engineer for an Aerospace company. I've had lots of other jobs too - from teaching harmonica to...smelling rotten salmon in an Alaskan fishery. By far, my favorite job has been working with Brea students and their parents. Besides my faith, my boys and my health, I consider my years with  BOUSD to be my greatest riches.
These are my sons, Adrian is 29, and Juan is 26.
