Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited about starting my 21st year of teaching at REV. This year, I will be teaching U.S. History (Periods 1-4) and Boys Basketball (Period 6). In the past, I have also taught World Geography, World History, Ethnic Studies, Credit Recovery, and AP U.S. History. My wife, Vanessa Aranda, teaches Digital Journalism, U.S. History, and Ethnic Studies at Orangewood High School. My son Ryan graduated from REV (c/o 2016), UC Riverside (2019), and earned his Master's Degree in Sport and Performance Psychology from Cal Baptist University (2021). He currently serves as the Head Boys Junior Varsity Basketball Coach at REV. My daughter is also a REV graduate (c/o 2022) and will be starting her 2nd year at UC San Diego this Fall.
I am entering my 25th year of coaching in the REV Boys Basketball program. Currently, I am the Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, learning more about U.S. History, watching sports and movies, and improving my knowledge as a teacher and basketball coach.
