Guillermo was born and raised in Calexico, CA and graduated from Calexico High School in 2008. He earned a BA in Political Science from the University of San Diego before earning his MA in Education from National University. His experience working with students from disadvantaged and underperforming schools throughout the years has taught him how to effectively communicate information and provide a broader set of thinking skills that prepares students to solve complex tasks and challenges. His approach to teaching is doused in the belief that through multidisciplinary approaches, students and teachers alike can collaborate to help shine a light into the otherwise dark corners of history. In his free time, Guillermo enjoys visiting local coffee shops, reading, watching sports, and exercising. You will more than likely find him at the beach with his 2 year old Boxer Gianna, on the weekends.
