Leonardo taught this past summer at KIPP Scholar in Crenshaw, Los Angeles as a Teach for America Corps Member and is very excited to continue to work with the KIPP Charter Schools at KIPP Adelante in San Diego! Leonardo was born in Baja California, Mexico, but considers himself a native of Chula Vista. With that said, he holds a very special place in his heart for immigrant/DACA students and families. Leonardo graduated from UCLA in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Human Biology and Society and is passionate about teaching science and fostering a love for science and inquiry in all students. Outside of the classroom, Leonardo enjoys watching/playing football, golf, and basketball, spending time with his wife and Siberian Husky, and attending church.
