Hello my name is Denny Vasquez and I am a teacher within the 7-12 grade system. I am also the robotics instructor for Excelsior Charter Schools. I have been teaching for 7 years now and to say that it is my passion would be an understatement. More than teaching the students about subject matter, I feel the more important aspects of teaching revolve around life and being a good human being. I teach because I want to change the world. I want to change it by shaping the future by showing students what it means to do good and to strive to be great.

Below are links to videos I have created that illustrate my philosophy on education and my accomplishments as an educator

Why do I teach? Visit this video I made to understand…
