Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited about starting my 20th year of teaching at REV. This year I am 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 AVID, Digital Journalism, 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 a recent REV graduate (c/o 2022) and will be attending UC San Diego this Fall.
I am entering my 24th 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.
