He has served as a general and special education teacher in both California and Texas, a bilingual instructional coordinator, and for more than 14 years as a campus administrator at both the middle school and high levels. He holds a doctorate in educational leadership, having taught in a variety of school settings from a residential treatment center to graduate school.
