About Ray

I am a retired elementary teacher whose focus was Math, English to non-English speakers, and Adult Education. Being a naturalized citizen from Mexico I really wanted to assist those students such as I who struggled in school due to their Language deficiency. Math has always intrigued me and problem solving is an essential part of life that all must accomplish to succeed. Algebra and Geometry students struggle because they have not been prepared adequately in basic Math to proceed with higher perception skills. Adults are a vital part of the education process and therefore I always tried to enroll the parents of my students in classes to better prepare them to help their children. School subjects are not all students need to prepare for the future, so I always tried to add discipline, responsible behavior, and demanded high expectations from my students. My focus was not to prepare my students to pass the tests, rather I was testing them every day for what life would be demanding of them. If you read the education media, the problems of too much focus on testing is now becoming evident with even the Superintendent of El Paso ISD actually serving time for illegal testing procedures. My strength in teaching lies with 6th grade and up to adults. I am a retired elementary teacher whose focus was Math, English to non-English speakers, and Adult Education.
