An Eagle welcome to our new APE Teachers! It’s a pleasure to finally be part of the Perez CTC familia. I’ve had the pleasure of working with our special population since 1999, I started as an Assistant and earned my teaching credential from CSULA after attaining a degree in Kinesiology and Adapted Physical Education. My prior experiences include Lanterman, Banneker CTC, Willenberg CTC, Salvin, Widney CTC, and various elementary schools where I honed my pedagogy abilities and made an amazing network of LAUSD friends. I look forward to adding my teaching philosophy to Perez CTC which involves promoting an affirmative commitment to individual lifelong success in Health and Fitness by optimizing individual movement development and providing an appropriate safe, fun, and positive atmosphere where we can give our students’ the opportunities to build self-esteem, en-ergy, determination, personal goal setting, and teamwork. -Ernesto R. Medina, “Ernie”

 

Hello Perez CTC, my name is Rigoberto Sanchez but I go by Rigo. I am one of the new Adapted P.E. teachers and I am very pleased to be at Perez. I have been to Perez before when I was in college and I volunteered in the P.E. department. I enjoyed working at Perez so much that I knew I wanted to teach at Perez. I have been working as an APE teacher for five years now and my hope is to stay at Perez for many years. I am dedicated, outgoing, a team player and I enjoy humor. I enjoy traveling, live music, nature, fishing and sports. Feel free to come to the P.E. department and say hi!

Hello Perez SEC/CTC my name is Alexander Cabral--I am going on my 10th year teaching, first teaching Physical Education for 7 years, then transitioning to APE for the last 3 years.  I have had the opportunity to work with students ranging from early education 3 year old’s all the way to adults in a university setting.   In addition to teaching PE here at Perez, I also teach at CSULA and coach wrestling at Alhambra HS.  My favorite thing about Perez is the wonder people who work and attend here, everyone has been very welcoming.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking.
