“Math was always my best subject. I liked how each problem always had an answer. I enjoy teaching math because I feel like I’m helping students understand a difficult subject. Being a teacher has also allowed me to volunteer and coach basketball.”
In his free time, Mr. Elizondo loves to travel, and each year, he tries to go on a “passport” vacation or several small local trips. He also loves spending time with friends and family, especially his 3-year-old nephew.
